|| C. briggsae
||When singled, hermaphrodites should throw 2/3 hermaphrodites and 1/2 nm2 XX males. The lethal appears to balance the nm2 allele pretty well, but precise recombination mapping has not been performed. The XX males maintain their phenotypic resemblance to the unbalanced strain and are probably not fertile due to obvious gonadal deficiencies. This strain has been successfully grown at 15C and 20C. Both strains appear to have complete penetrance of the mutant phenotypes.
