Inference of correct complete LGT scenarios. Proportion of correctly inferred LGT scenarios, i.e. scenarios with 100% TP and 0% FP as a function of the true number of LGT. Results were obtained with a support threshold for topological conflict significance of 0.90. As EEEP and RIATA-HGT may propose multiple scenarios, grey areas represent the variability between the worst and the best scenarios. Areas are delimited by blue borders for RIATA-HGT and green borders for EEEP. Prunier (fast version) results are plotted in magenta. The black curve symbolizes the reference boundary was obtained using RIATA-HGT (best scenario selected) on true gene trees.
