Table 1 Inter-species ambiguity: Degree of ambiguity between gene name dictionaries of different organisms. The three numbers in each field correspond to the three definitions of equivalence: exact, mixed, and normalized, respectively, from left to right; numbers are percentages. The upper part of the table contains values for the combined dictionaries, the lower part the values for the curated dictionaries (combined dictionaries are compared against combined dictionaries, and curated against curated dictionaries). For details see section 'Inter-species ambiguity'.
