Comparison of circular RNA prediction tools

Hansen and colleagues at the Aarhus University in Denmark compares five popular algorithms for the prediction of circular RNA candidates. The authors compare circRNA_finder, find_circ, CIRCexplorer, CIRI, and MapSplice and evaluate the false positive rate. Analysis concludes the utility of using multiple tools to reduce the false positivity.
