From: Social networks help to infer causality in the tumor microenvironment

  Predicted interactions Evaluated predictions Correct predictions Correct predictions (%) p value
BC 0.01 1390 121 77 63.63 0.02
BC 0.05 1999 179 106 59.21 0.15
BC 0.1 2416 212 126 59.43 0.10
OC 0.01 891 106 66 62.26 0.04
OC 0.05 1223 139 81 58.27 0.21
OC 0.1 1465 160 97 60.62 0.04
LC 0.01 545 69 48 69.56 0.00

  1. The application of the method using p values of 0.01, 0.05 and 0.1 to construct the co-expression network resulted in different number and percentages of correct predictions. The most stringent p value (0.01) obtained the best percentages in BC, OC and LC datasets (in italics)
