Separate genes conferring antibiotic drag resistance have been inserted into Fusarium graminearum and Fusarium moniliforme. These organisms are associated with stalk rot of corn, a disease of uncertain cause. Antibiotic resistant fungi were obtained by developing a gene transfer system using whole cells as recipients for DNA. Hygromycin B and benomyl-resistant colonies were isolated by treating fungal tissue with lithium acetate and adding plasmid vectors containing the respective genes which… CONTINUE READING
