The ratios of aberrant embryos and adults were tested for variation among families within each cross with χ^{2 }test for homogeneity (χ^{2 }_{HOM }with d.f. = N_{fam } 1). When ratios were not significantly different across families, the numbers of progeny were pooled and tested against the expected ratios with χ^{2 }goodnessoffit test (χ^{2 }_{GF }with d.f. = 1). Otherwise, the ratios were tested against the expected values in each family separately (d.f. = 1; see "Different BE phenotypes and variation in lethality of underlying alleles" section). Standard deviation (SD) and P values (P) are given in square brackets.
