Abstract

A series of strains, doubly mutant at conidiation loci, have been made. The phenotypes of these strains reflected the epistasy of earlier blocking mutants over later ones and confirmed the order of gene sequence predicted from the phenotypes of single mutants. Oligosporogenous mutants gave complex interactions, especially between and mutants. These results indicated that (i) gene action overlapped in time, (ii) several parts of the conidial apparatus were interchangeable and (iii) nuclei leaving the vesicle were not irreversibly programmed. Structures produced by mutants were reminiscent of the conidial apparatus of other species and of related genera.
