Do we have the balanced error rate (BER)

Dear RM friends,
Perhaps I am unable to find this or it is not available or (a useless metric), but does RM provides the BER as a balanced metric that equally weights errors in Sensitivity and Specificity. 
All feedback is appreciated.

    I just read it in this recent paper where it was used without further explanation but as THE performance feature? For what is worth. https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0226962

    So kind dear Martin, I just try to understand why it received so much attention in that PLOSOne paper while I think they could have used other features. I already responded on the PLOS website because I think they did not take care of te contamination examples published by Ingo a while ago (https://rapidminer.com/resource/correct-model-validation/)
    Interested in your recent activities!!
