d, gene density per site; L, genome size; r, fraction of non-repetitive DNA; ng, total number of genes; nu, number of genes missing in the genomes of Oj or Oi, but preserved in On, Or, or Og; hu, number of unmapped BESs that matched the nr database proteins; hm, number of mapped BESs that matched the nr database proteins. For Oj and Oi, we used simulated BESs.
