  • ND, not determined.

  • a Expected number of loci to originate from each Arabidopsis chromosome on the basis of random distribution of loci across five chromosomes with the following approximate sizes: C1, 30 Mb; C2, 20 Mb (not including the NOR region); C3, 23 Mb; C4, 18 Mb (not including the NOR region); and C5, 27 Mb.
