  • Neurospora vegetative mRNA-seq datasets were obtained from the NCBI SRA database (SRX033295, SRX033369, SRX033410, SRX033477, SRX033487, SRX033498, and SRX037168–037170) and aligned to predicted N. crassa transcripts with Bowtie (Langmead et al. 2009). RPKM, reads per kilobase of exon model per million mapped reads (Mortazavi et al. 2008).
