  1. A dataset of 455 simulated IS generated previously [22] was used to test the performance of VISPA2 and other available IS mapping tools. In the confusion matrix used to assess precision and recall we defined: TP True Positives, number of IS correctly mapped into the genome (with a tolerance of 3 bp); FP False Positives, number of IS mapped in a wrong genomic location (>3 bp from the theoretical locus); FN False Negatives, number of discarded IS
