The role of driving-Y cleavage rate and the background population growth rate. These parameters influence population suppression (top; 8 years after releases begin) and wildtype presence (bottom; the fraction of sites where there are normal Y-chromosomes). The contours chart the growth rate of a population fixed with driving-Y chromosomes, at values 8, 4, 2, 1 (solid line) and 0.5 from left to right, computed from a simple model of a well-mixed population (described in [15])
