Entropy distance was calculated between all segmentations as described in Materials and methods. Higher numbers indicate greater difference between segmentations. The actual classification into particular isochore families is not regarded here. The segmentations of least-squares and GC-Profile are most similar whereas the isochore partitioning of the least-squares and the BASIO method are most distinct. The consensus isochore map is most similar to all other methods on average. *The average agreement of the method in the respective row with all other methods except itself and the consensus isochore map.
