a Data were generated using cell counts to assign case versus control status (IFRACT = 0) and excluded the training data when scoring and running 10 10-fold cross-validations for functions 1–5 (ITRAIN = 0, FRACT = 0.1, NTIME = 10). Results including training data in scoring are presented in Additional file 1, Table S1.

b Simulated data sets were described previously [14] and were obtained from Dr. Moore by request.

c Total score is the summation over all scoring functions after linearly scaling the score for each individual function such that the top score is 50.0.
