Table 1 PLS-DA quality parameters

From: qRT-PCR evaluation of the transcriptional response of zebra mussel to heavy metals

Factor Class Sensitivity Specificity Accuracy
Time of exposure 1-day 0.93 0.88 0.91
1-week 0.86 0.96 0.91
Metal treatment Cu 0.70 0.80 0.77
Cd 0.80 0.77 0.78
Hg 0.80 0.67 0.73
  1. Sensitivity = TP/(TP + FN); Specificity = TN/(TN + FP); Accuracy = (TN + TP)/(TN + TP + FN + FP) where TP are true positives, TN are true negatives, FP are false positives, and FN are false negatives.
