Summary of gene conversion results from color mutants crossed to wild types from SFS or NFS, using unbiased data from conversions to wild type only

Color mutations and the kinds of wild type (wt) to which they were crossed, from south- or north-facing slopesTotal asci with conversion to wild typeAsci with conversion to wild type% of asci with postmeiotic segregation among asci with conversion to wild type

  • See Table 4 for details, including within-slope variation. Significant (*) or highly significant (**) χ2 values, after making the Bonferroni correction for multiple tests; because there are 10 tests, the usual significance levels of 0.05 and 0.01 are each divided by 10. *P ≤ 0.005; **P ≤ 0.001.
