    "Two lines independently transformed by this cosmid (5581.118 and 5581.4), each with a single independent autosomal insertion, were obtained and tested for complementation of swit476. Neither of them was able to complement swit476, implying that a6, b6, CG14798 and EG:9D2.4 are not swi."
    I don't comprehend these words. If the two fragments didn't complement the swit476, the loci on these fragments and the swi should be functional alleles.
