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

  1. Single recoveries are also shown. *Percentage of PGI = m/(m + s); expected frequency of PGI was taken from Table 1; expected PGI = τ × rows × columns (see Table 2); §percentage of expected = 100 × m/e; based on 37 rows only.
