The average overall allele frequency (2.02 alleles per locus; 174 mutations falling into 86 complementation groups) was calculated by counting all mutants that were tested for allelism against various candidates. This number does not change significantly if we exclude the 10 X-linked complementation groups from the calculation and count only the autosomal complementation groups (2.05 alleles per locus; 156 mutants falling into 76 complementation groups).
