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 is difficult to acquire with plants and animals, and experimental findings with fungi often throw light on corresponding processes in plants and animals. The filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa has become a valuable model organism because of its favorable features for genetic analysis and because of the vast store of information that has been acquired during 75 years of research. This compendium provides researchers and students with a concise account of current knowledge about the genes and genome of Neurospora, setting the stage for research that will follow completion of the genome sequence.
This book, which is fully documented and abundantly illustrated, will be an indispensable tool in any laboratory that uses fungi for research in molecular genetics, classical genetics, developmental genetics, or cell biology.


Useful to professionals and graduate students doing research with fungi, geneticists, molecular and cell biologists, plant pathologists, mycologists (including medical mycologists), and workers in comparative genomics.

Quotes and reviews

"...a landmark - a presentation of the genetic resources of the best known eukaryotic microbe except yeast, and an enduring biological model for filamentous fungi. The book is an obligatory reference for geneticists and for biologists needing information about or working on Neurospora and related fungi."
