“Total” means the total number of SNVs called by four algorithms. “By 1” means the number (percentage) of SNVs called by only one of the four algorithms. “By 2” means the number (percentage) of SNVs called by any two algorithms. “By 3” means the number (percentage) of SNVs called by any three algorithms. “By 4” means the number (percentage) of SNVs called by four algorithms.
