  2. btotal number of G0 adults mated based on 70, 140, and 80 single G0 adult matings (to 3 opposite sex adults) for D. melanogaster pKhop[Dmwhite+] and phop[PUb-DsRed.T3] transformations, and the A. suspensa phop[PUb-DsRed.T3] transformation, respectively; additional G0s were mated in groups of 2–3 same sex G0 adults to opposite sex adults
  3. ctransformation frequency calculated as number of transformant lines per number of fertile lines
