  1. (C) indicates that the "Conservative" bound is used while (G) indicates that the "Generous" bound is used. Sensitivity refers to the percentage of replication origins predicted by our method, and PPV (positive predictive value) the proportion of HSS that correctly predict replication origins. APD (average predictive distance), given in map units (± one standard deviation), shows the average of the distances between the center of each replication origin and a HSS that predicts it in map units. %L, %R and %C count the number of times the center of replication origin falls within the left, right or center of the HSS.
