Relationship between Term Overlap and alternate methods ("maximum" variants). The data for the 100 k set of randomly selected gene pairs are presented as raw points (light grey) as well as density (hexagons, plotted using the R package "hexbin"). Darker colors indicate increasing density of points. The plots represent TO vs. Resnik (A), Jiang (B), and Lin (C).
