Table 2 Hybridlab/BAPS classification of samples characterised as hybrids or pure species using X-diagnostic markers

From: Contemporary gene flow between wild An. gambiae s.s. and An. arabiensis

  1. Samples were characterised using two X-chromosome diagnostic markers – the IGS [20] and SINE [19]. bx_A.a and bx_A.g are are backrosses to An. arabiensis and An. gambiae. Counts in columns 2–4 show significantly mixed individuals; NS = not significantly mixed. p(bx) and LCL95, UCL95 are the frequency of backcrosses and associated binomial lower and upper confidence limits. P = 0.058; note > bx3_A.g are below detection limit of test.
