Table 1 Characteristics and sources of the four test data-sets, columns from left to right show: data-set, lengths, mean pair-wise sequence similarity (mean pair-wise Kimura "2-parameter" distance is shown in parentheses [109]), the number of sequences in each alignment and the alignment and structure sources are given.
