Population suppression over time for each daily release proportion and cell-lethal gene. Each cell corresponds to a gene and mating competitiveness and each line to a release proportion. The lines move forward in simulation time and the thickness corresponds to the adult female population. Competitiveness represents a male agent’s ability to mate relative to a true wild-type male (if this value is 50%, it is half as competitive as wild-types).
