Similarity score for solid tumors. The similarities among three gene orders for different solid tumors. In the plot, the red curve corresponds to simulated observed scores and the black curve to simulated random scores. These are kernel density estimates of the two score distributions underlying the pAUC-score for optimal α*. The vertical red line denotes the observed similarity score. The bottom rugs mark the simulated values.
