Published annotation 13,676 11,837 (86.55 %) 12,005 (87.78 %) 9,994 (73.08 %)
 after filtering     8,810 (64.42 %)
Direct re-annotation 13,676 13,436 (98.24 %) 13,401 (97.99 %) 13,328 (97.45 %)
 after filtering     12,334 (90.19 %)
Reciprocal re-annotation 13,457 (98.40 %) 13,373 (97.78 %) 13,346 (97.59 %) 13,311 (97.33 %)

  1. The last column contains the number of genes for which 1:1 orthologs were identified in the three species. “after filtering” indicates the remaining common genes after filtering out genes with length difference larger than 49 bp. Percentages in brackets are always given in relation to the total number of gene models in D. melanogaster (r5.55; 13,676 gene models)
