  • a The EcoRI fragments were run 11 times, and the StyI fragments were run 13 times.

  • b The numbers in parentheses denote the observed sizes as percentages of the actual sizes of the fragments.

  • c The numbers in parentheses denote the standard deviations as percentages of the average observed sizes.
