Transmission patterns of integrated transgenes in ooctyes and sperm. Percentages of progeny inheriting the “anti” (white) or “preferred” (gray) chromosome combinations (see). (a) Oocytes in fem-3 and her-1 mutants. P-values are from binomial tests assuming equal segregation of the two chromosome combinations (see also Supplementary Figure S4). (b) Sperm in her-1 mutant. Percentages are estimated [est] from the observed ratio of 155:27::XO:XX individuals, and P-value is from a binomial test assuming 2:1 ratio of XO:XX individuals (see main text and Supplementary Figure S5 for details). Error bars, 95% confidence intervals. ***P < 0.001; n.s., not significant (P > 0.05); TBR, transmission bias ratio; N_total, total individuals scored.
