  1. a The p-value of Pearson’s chi-square test measures the strength of association between an inferred network and the true network for the simulation study.
  2. b True positive rate (TPR) is defined as the proportion of correctly inferred regulatory relationships.
  3. c The number of misclassified cases is the sum of false positives and false negatives.
  4. Remark: The values reported in the table were averaged across the 20 replications. The true network for the simulation study contained a total of 21951 edges.
