Table 2 Use of the criterion "total length ≥ 80 bp and %matches ≥ 80%" on 10 species for which 2 strains were compared. The numbers of tandem repeats with equal lengths and different lengths between the two strains in the whole set, and positive and negative groups are listed.

Comparison (total number of TRs loci) Whole set (proportion) Criterion + (L≥80 bp, %M≥80%) Criterion - Sensitivity (% of the TRs with different lengths that were detected by criterion) Specificity (% of the TRs predicted by the criterion that have different length) % of all TRs that fulfil the criterion
