The genomes are listed according to ascending G+C content. For each genome, the table shows: Genome GC content (GC %), the number of genes annotated in GenBank for that genome, the number of genes in the RescueNet training set, overall RescueNet sensitivity (Sn.), the sensitivity of RescueNet in finding genes longer than the 225 bp minimum prediction size (Sn. >225 bp), the sensitivity of RescueNet in finding genes that have been confirmed by homology with other genes in GenBank (Sn. Conserved), and finally, overall RescueNet specificity (Sp.)
