Abstract

A new microcycle microconidiating strain (mcm) ofNeurospora crassa was derived by successive backcrosses of a soil isolate to a laboratory wild-type strain. Surface grown cultures show normal wild-type vegetative morphology. However, under continuous agitation in liquid cultures at 22°C, macroconidial germlings bypass the usual mycelial phase and produce abundant numbers of uninucleate microconidia within 24 h. Temperature and culture media affect the production of microconidia.
