Table 1 Numbers (#) and frequencies of indicated mutant phenotypes frequently observed in the 0.3 and 0.4% EMS treatment M2 populations. The frequency was calculated with respect to the total number of plants in each population

From: Construction and analysis of a Noccaea caerulescens TILLING population
