EMS mutagenesis hit ratio formula

Can anyone provide a reference and/or formula for calculating the efficiency
of EMS mutagenesis, based on mutation rate, genome size, etc.  I.e., what
mutation rate/EMS conc. is needed to get a 95% confidence of hitting every
gene atleast once, as in the Nusslein-Volhard Wieschaus screen?  This is not
for Drosophila, so I would like a variable parameter for genome size.
