Percentages shown for self-crosses are averages from multiple experiments. Parentheses following B. plicatilis s.s. indicate whether the isolate contains mmr-b sequence type 1 or type 2. Significance of differences between self- and out-crosses was calculated using data from single self-cross experiment conducted simultaneously with out-cross, which is different than the average from the multiple experiments shown. Significance determined using Mann-Whitney U-test (* for p < 0.05, ** for p < 0.005, *** for p < 0.0005, two-tailed test).
