From: Improving somatic variant identification through integration of genome and exome data

  1. aNumber of true positives, computed as the simple union of the number of variants called by each method out of the 700 simulated somatic variants for the two platform data
  2. bTotal number of somatic variants called by each method on the whole exome and whole genome datasets
