  1. Percentage of the human genome classified into the same isochore families by each pair of methods. The amount of equally classified human DNA ranges from 59-86% in an all-against-all pairwise comparison. On average, all methods agree in about 66% of the genome. The consensus isochore map has the best agreement of 79%, on average, with all other methods. *The average agreement of the method in the respective row with all other methods except itself and the consensus isochore map.
