Table 1 Benchmarking LatTrans, HorizStory and EEEP. Entries show the percentage of cases for which a solution was found, given the constraints of 4 gigabytes of RAM and five hours of running time. Ten reference tree – test tree pairs were generated for each leaf number – transfer number pair, giving 320 tests in all.

From: Phylogenetic identification of lateral genetic transfer events
