  1. The first four columns contain submissions formed using just one type of metadata, the “Combined MS/MS” column was formed by equally weighting all Category 2 entries from Table 2, while the last two columns combined this with retention time and references without and with MoNA, respectively
  2. The best value per statistic is marked in bold
