Analysis of simulated datasets for a finite gene pool (a, b) and a varying genome size (c, d). a The mean genome intersections for finite gene pool simulation. The parameters that were used in the simulations are the model parameters inferred under the IGP-CGS assumptions (see Additional file 1: Table S1). For slow-evolving genes, the pool size was 3 times the number of slow genes, and the fast-evolving gene pool was 9 times the number of fast genes. The IGP-CGS model fits and genomic data are also shown, as indicated in the legend. b Gene commonality distribution for the finite gene pool simulation, for the same model parameters as in b. c The mean genome intersections for varying genome size. For slow-evolving genes, the ratio of gain and loss rates is 1.26, whereas for the fast-evolving genes, this ratio is 0.16. d Gene commonality distribution for varying genome size for the same model parameters as in c
