*Δ-distance as defined in Method, Eq. 8.

◊ Average or Maximum distance among partitions of a particular structural comparison program, or of a tree-cutting strategy. Average distance among SHEBA partitions for example, is obtained by averaging across all SHEBA similarity scores and tree cutting strategies. Average distance among largest size cut partitions for example, is obtained by averaging across all similarity scores of structure comparison programs VAST, SHEBA and DALI.
