  • a Each sectored colony is given a different number. A, B, and C indicate different sectors from the same survivor colony.

  • b For trisomy and monosomy events, the letters W (W303-1A) and Y (YJM789) indicate the homolog that is duplicated or lost; similarly, for deletions/duplications, W and Y indicate the homolog from which sequences were duplicated or lost. “Terminal LOH” indicates loss of heterozygosity extending to the telomere. These events have a single breakpoint whereas interstitial LOH events have two breakpoints. For LOH events, letters in parentheses show the homolog that is the source of the homozygous SNPs.

  • c SGD coordinates of breakpoints between heterozygous and homozygous SNPs for various types of LOH events. Boldface indicates that there is a Ty or δ/σ-element located between the indicated coordinates.

  • d For these chromosomes, the hybridization ratio suggests that the DNA sample was derived from a mixture of two subpopulations of cells, one with the alteration and one without the alteration.

  • e UPD indicates uniparental disomy (Andersen and Petes 2012). In this strain, there were two copies of the YJM789-derived homolog and none of the W303-1A-derived homolog.

  • f As discussed in the text, the deletion on chromosome XIV may be related to the duplication on chromosome XII.

  • g The breakpoint of this event on XII is not associated with the rDNA.

  • h This duplication includes the centromere of III.

  • i The breakpoints in this rearrangement were unclear but occurred near the rDNA.

  • j This region has a δ-element in S288c, but in some strains has a Ty (Argueso et al. 2008). The duplication contains CEN12.
