Three new phylogenetic and biological Neurospora species: N. hispaniola, N. metzenbergii and N. perkinsii
The recent recognition of provisional Neurospora phylogenetic species (PS) 1–3 gave us the opportunity to compare genetic isolation, which underlies phylogenetic species recognition (PSR), with… Expand
A molecular characterization of spontaneous frameshift mutagenesis within the trpA gene of Escherichia coli.
Spontaneous frameshift mutations are an important source of genetic variation in all species and cause a large number of genetic disorders in humans. To enhance our understanding of the molecular… Expand
