Estimated distances—i.e. estimated average number of substitutions per position—for simulated sequence pairs, plotted against the ‘real’ distances—i.e. substitution probabilities used in the simulations, for pairs of sequences of length \(L=500\) kb. We applied our own approach with parameters \(k=90\) and \(w=31\) (top) as well as Filtered Spaced Word Matches (middle) and andi (bottom)
