Use Sordaria fimicola to allow students to visualize the results of crossing over during cell division.
- Use living species to teach complex genetics concepts
- High quality organisms cultured on-site and shipped to you ready to use
Sordaria's ascospores, exhibit characteristic color patterns based on mutant type and are readily observable under a microscope. Use the arrangement of ascospores to estimate percentage of crossover between the centromere and the gene that controls spore color.
Organisms can be crossed in any confiuration, but the most popular cross (Wild Type strain X Tan Mutant) is available for purchase.
