A simple and rapid technique for obtaining a high proportion of hybrid cleistothecia in Aspergillus nidulans

  • B. W. Bainbridge (a1)

Summary

A technique is reported for crossing strains of Aspergillus nidulans which produces hybrid cleistothecia in 7 days. The method depends on the partial inhibition of cleistothecium formation of auxotrophic mutants by growth-factor limitation. Cleistothecia form at the junction of two strains inoculated on to complete medium. The method has a number of advantages over standard techniques.
