  1. The rows are sorted by the number of true HGTs simulated for each gene data set. The 'd1' and 'd2' columns denote the distance, in terms of the number of branches on the species tree, between the source and recipient of the first and second HGT events simulated, respectively. The 'b1', 'b2', and 'b3' columns correspond to the support values from Formula 3 for adding the first, second, and third HGT edges inferred by the MP analysis. Since adding HGT edges stops once a weakly supported edge is encountered, a '-' entry under these columns indicates that adding HGT edges was stopped before.
