  • Any zym mutants that have been used in work previously published have retained their original numbers. Thus, for example, the zym-6 mutant assigned to complementation group B by VanWinkle-Swift and Burrascano (1983) will continue to be referred to as zym-6 (or, more accurately, as zym-6-1, since a second allele at that locus has since been obtained).

  • a The gene loci are assumed to be equivalent to complementation groups. Locus numbers do not necessarily reflect the chronological order in which mutant alleles at these loci were obtained.
