  1. The results from running bzip2 are shown against the winning entries in each category of the contest. Full results from all entries, including links to their source code, are available on the Sequence Squeeze website [4]. Compression ratios are the ratio of compressed file size to original file size (smaller is better). Times are in clockface seconds. Memory usage is peak in kilobytes. Entries with less than 100% round-trip accuracy are excluded.
