Table 1 A comparison of pA predictions for prokaryotic species. SIGI-HMM was used to identify GIs. The accumulated length of genes constituting GIs is given in percent in column pA DNA. This transformation allows to compare results with entries of column Foreign DNA, which was reproduced from [41]. The column Length lists the genome size im Mbp.
