Selective inbreeding results in highly consistent PEV phenotypes within a laboratory population. a Quantitative assessment of pigment levels in the adult fly eye representing the degree of PEV. Each data point represents a reading from samples of five flies from a population of the indicated genotype, parental (39C-12) or selected (A1, D1) (see “Materials and methods” for details). yw is used to indicate the background pigment level. b Images of the PEV pattern in the adult fly eye taken from randomly selected individuals in each of the A1 and D1 inbred populations
