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. The approximately 40-megabase genome encodes about 10,000 protein-coding genes--more than twice as many as in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe and only(More)
The poi-2 gene is highly and specifically expressed in starved and sexual tissues of the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa. It encodes a 27-kDa protein, as shown by in vitro transcription and translation. The POI2 protein contains a hydrophobic signal sequence at the amino terminus followed by novel 16 tandem repeats of 13 to 14 amino acid residues; all(More)
