Table 2 Probable germinal insertions (PGI) based on row and column matches

From: Genome-wide mutagenesis of Zea mays L. using RescueMu transposons

Grid Rows (r) Columns (c) Transposition frequency (τ)* Expected PGI (e) Row + column matches (m) Percentage of expected Transposition frequency (using row + column)§
G 46 4 0.68 125.1 149 119% 0.81
H 36 4 0.62 89.3 115 129% 0.80
I 38 5 0.62 117.8 128 109% 0.67
K 30 3 0.66 59.4 32 54% 0.36
M 40 3 1.30 156.0 33 21% 0.28
P 37 4 1.40 207.2 71 34% 0.48
Total     754.8 528 70%  
  1. *Expected frequency of PGI was determined from DNA gel blot analysis of frequency of newly transposed RescueMu per plant as stated in Table 1; expected = r × c × τ; percentage of expected = 100 × m/e; §transposition frequency = m/(r × c); for grids H and M, rows were considered columns and vice versa to simplify calculations.
