  • The numbers of diploid strains that showed differences when compared with the related haploid strains across three quantitative metrics are shown. Quantitative values were compared using a paired two-tailed t-test assuming unequal variance across all technical replicates for each strain. P-values were evaluated for significance using the q-values package from Storey with the Benjamini-Hochberg method (Storey 2002).

  • a 23 strains.

  • b 23 strains.

  • c 24 strains.

  • d FDR = 0.05.
