a Breakpoint positions refer to the nt positions in the full alignment of the vertebrate NAT sequences. They may slightly vary depending on the method used to detect recombinant sequences, leading to different gene conversion tract lengths.

b In cases where multiple methods detected the same or a similar conversion event, we reported the P-value range, i.e. the worst and the best P-value; the method yielding the best P-value is shown in bold. Otherwise, only the P-value of the single algorithm detecting a conversion event is presented.
