  • a Total amount of heterosis: numerical integration of Equation 9 with u = 10−6, λ = 2, L = 106, and N = 100. Parameters of the DFEM are given in the main text.

  • b Shilled entries show percentage of heterosis due to WS mutations for which b/(1 − h) < s < b/h and percentage of such mutations in the whole mutation spectrum.
