  • a Where the spore clones did not grow into macrocolonies, the genotype of the mutants was inferred from the genotypes of viable spore clones in the tetrad, assuming no gene conversion.

  • b Growth rate was assessed by colony size of spore clones.

  • c Growth rate was comparable to the glc7 mutant alone.
