Summary: The BDTcomparator facilitates the selection of the best performing binary classification model or binary diagnostic procedure from the many possible alternatives by comparing their predictions with a known output, measured with the use of a system recognized as the gold standard. The program calculates the estimates of accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, predictive values and diagnostic likelihood ratios along with appropriate confidence intervals. Furthermore, all pairwise comparisons with respect to the above-mentioned measures are calculated. The formatted results can be exported to a text-file.

Availability and Implementation: BDTcomparator is distributed under the GNU GPLv3 license and is freely available for download from We provide programs for both Linux and Windows operating systems. The source code of the program is provided in our companion website

Supplementary Information: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
