  1. The non-empty phenotypes are listed in the first column, while the second and the third columns yield the size of the phenotype
  2. in two different environments (at two different folding temperatures, 37 °C and 43 °C); \(p_{\text {stay}}^{37}\) and \(p_{\text {stay}}^{43}\) are the probabilities that
  3. a point mutation does not change the phenotype at 37 °C or 43 °C, respectively; \(p_{\text {stay}}^{37 \to 43}\) is the probability that a given sequence
  4. folds in the same phenotype when the temperature changes from 37 °C to 43 °C, and similarly for \(p_{\text {stay}}^{43 \to 37}\)
