Data set Observed ORFans Chao Bin. mix.

  1. The number of observed gene families in data set, the number of ORFans (gene families found in 1 genome only), Chao estimates and binomial mixture estimates of pan-genome size for the original E. coli data as well as reduced data sets. "Reduced 10%" means the 10% shortest hypothetical proteins were removed from the original data set, and correspondingly for "Reduced 50%". "Easygene" is a new data set with genes predicted by the Easygene gene prediction tool.
