Literature Studies

Page summary
Here outcomes of benchmarking studies from the literature are collected. The primary aim is a comprehensive overview about neutral benchmark studies, i.e. assessments which were performed independenty on publication of a new approach. Studies which are not neutral are put in brackets.

The focus is on computational methods for analyzing experimental data form the molecular biology field (instead of comparing experimental techniques or platforms).
