  • a “∷” indicates that an extra copy of a wild-type gene is inserted ectopically at the his-3 locus on LG IR or at the am locus on LG VR.

  • b The four-digit strain numbers (e.g., 95-20, 95-21) are from R. L. Metzenberg's collection. N2505 and N2527 are from M. Freitag, Oregon State University, Corvallis. The remaining strains are from either the Fungal Genetics Stock Center (FGSC) or the Perkins collection (DDP 3120) at Stanford University.
