Table 3 Performance on the human gut metagenomes. Number of plasmids, the median plasmid length (in kbp), and performance measures for all tools are averaged across the twenty samples. The average number of plasmids and median length of the gold standard sets of plasmids were 4.8 and 12.4 respectively
