Specificity, sensitivity and Jaccard coefficient were estimated by comparison with InterPro classification. The best quality metrics are indicated in bold. SiLiX was used with an alignment coverage threshold set to 80% and with various sequence identity thresholds. hcluster_sg was used on the entire dataset or only on the largest families (more than 100 sequences) retrieved by SiLiX with a permissive sequence identity thresholds of 25% (hcluster_sg(100)).
