Percentage of genes that are classified equally by all methods. Between 50% and 84% of all genes are classified into the same isochore family by all methods. The consensus isochore map shows the greatest agreement with all other isochore maps on average. *The average agreement of the method in the respective row with all other methods except itself and the consensus isochore map.
