The genome sequence of the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa
Neurospora crassa is a central organism in the history of twentieth-century genetics, biochemistry and molecular biology. Here, we report a high-quality draft sequence of the N. crassa genome. TheExpand

Neurospora from natural populations: a global study.
This is a summary report on samples of conidiating Neurospora species collected over three decades, in many regions around the world, primarily from burned vegetation. The genus is ubiquitous inExpand

Neurospora from natural populations: Toward the population biology of a haploid eukaryote
Abstract Natural populations of the ascomycete Neurospora have been sampled systematically throughout much of the world, and the haploid strains from colonies in nature have been characterizedExpand

The Neurospora Compendium: Chromosomal Loci
The fungi have been major players in the molecular revolution that has transformed biology. Because they can be manipulated as microorganisms, yeast and Neurospora provide information that isExpand

Spore killer, a chromosomal factor in neurospora that kills meiotic products not containing it.
Three chromosomal factors called Spore killer (Sk) have been found in wild populations of Neurospora sitophila and N. intermedia. Sk resembles other examples of meiotic drive such as SegregationExpand

Neurospora discreta, a new heterothallic species defined by its crossing behavior
Abstract The species is described and named Neurospora discreta sp. nov. because of its stringent reproductive isolation. Isolates collected from burned vegetation at a single site near Kirbyville,Expand
