Table 2 Comparing the average error of Mash, Skmer, and AAF in estimating distances over three datasets with heterogeneous sequencing effort

From: Skmer: assembly-free and alignment-free sample identification using genome skims

Dataset Mash Skmer AAF (uncorrected) AAF (corrected)
Anopheles 28.72% (1.10%) 0.84% (0.03%) 13.48% (0.56%) 11.36% (0.44%)
Drosophila 29.05% (0.59%) 0.84% (0.04%) 15.25% (0.38%) 10.94% (0.33%)
Birds 64.29% (0.54%) 2.21% (0.04%) 36.02% (0.29%) 5.28% (0.16%)
