A and 3B: Equivalent e-values and additional BLAST hits. Figure 3A shows equivalent e-values for the label gene size. We defined the equivalent e-value of a specific label as the e-value threshold that gives the same positive predictive value as a BLAST search not using label information (a more detailed description is given in the main text). Figure 3B shows the average number of homologs per query when equivalent e-values are used as thresholds in cases where genes of a query-hit pair share gene order or are of similar size.
