  1. The five simulated clinical samples are labeled A-E. Columns 1: Genomic DNA concentration, ng/μl. Columns 2: Tag4 results. Columns 3: SOLiD results. In columns 2 and 3, "1", a majority of the molecular probes for that genome was positive. "0", a majority of the molecular probes for that genome was not positive
