Abstract

SUMMARY: Twelve mutations of resulting in a lack of visible aerial mycelium were mapped genetically. The mutants were classified into three groups on the basis of colony morphology, production of antibiotics and morphology on different carbon sources. Four map locations were found for the genes and three of these were very near the loci of genes, which are also involved in differentiation. Closely linked mutations had similar phenotypes.
