G. gorilla −19 22 47,74
D. simulans −21 2R 43,93
G. gallus −24 25 54,96

H. sapiens 19 50,06
  1. Energy thresholds, obtained with the methodology mentioned in Section “Setting the energy threshold”, and the GC% of the different chromosomes from dataset D1, including the ones for test from dataset D4 (three last lines). To choose the genomes, we mainly considered the GC content (varying from 37% to 54%), as this plays an important role in determining a hairpin structure.
