Table 4 Classification of mutations induced by electron and C-ion irradiation

From: Characterization of highly efficient heavy-ion mutagenesis in Arabidopsis thaliana

Radiation Small alterations* (%) Rearrangements* (%) Reference
Electron (0.2 keV μm-1) 9 (75.0) 3 (25.0) [21]
C-ion (22.5 keV μm-1) 10 (83.3) 2 (16.7) This study
C-ion (30.0 keV μm-1) 8 (80.0) 2 (20.0) This study
C-ion (101-124 keV μm-1) 14 (48.3) 15 (51.7) [21]
  1. * Small alterations comprise 1-100 bp deletions/insertions and base substitutions. Rearrangements comprise deletions/insertions exceeding 100 bp, translocations, reciprocal translocations and inversions.
