  • Estimates of UMIN from additional N2 data sets (Azevedo et al. 2002) are included for comparison; note that haploid values of UMIN are reported in the original publication. UMIN, Bateman–Mukai estimate of diploid U (standard error in parentheses); Embedded Image, Bateman–Mukai estimate of average homozygous effect (not scaled to the control mean); NA, not applicable. O. myr, O. myriophila; C. el, C. elegans; C. br, C. briggsae.
