  1. aThe sample set is number of positive/negative interactions for the similarity comparison based approaches, and is number of drugs/known targets/decoys for docking algorithm based approaches
  2. bThe AUC (Area Under Curve) is used to represent the prediction performance in the references cited, the closer the AUC value is to 1, the better the prediction performance is
  3. cThe TOP is the percentage of the top 2%/5%/10% candidates identified by the tools (except INVDOCK) to represent the prediction performance in the references cited, the higher the value of the TOP, the better the performance
  4. dFor HitPick, a sensitivity of 60.94%, a specificity of 99.99% and a precision of 92.11% is indicated in the references cited, normally, we can infer that the AUC of this tool is smaller than 0.61
  5. eFor INVDOCK, the TOP is the percentage of candidates identified by the tool, but the top percentage isn’t indicated in the references cited, the maximum value 50 is indicated
