Which word/phrase could replace "respectively" ?

For example, "Rice, wheat and maize contain 164, 163 and 159 genes, respectively"
or "Ten genes exhibited a 2 to 3.8 and 3.2 to 5.9 fold change in D1h and D6h, respectively"

Is there a word/phrase or another way of writing that can replace "respectively" in the sentence?
