Abstract

SUMMARY: Mutants of resistant to the fungicide, methyl-1-(butyl-carbamoyl)-benzimidazolecarbamate, were isolated following u.v. irradiation of conidia. Genetic analysis of 15 of the mutant strains revealed that resistance was due to a single allele averaging 2·9 map units right of , 17·9 units right of and 32·1 units left of in linkage group VI. Tests of heterokaryons containing both resistant and sensitive alleles indicated that resistance is dominant. The mutants did not possess the same degree of tolerance to the fungicide.
