Crosses with tan or gray strains.
Demonstrates Crossing Over During Cell Division
Ascospores, the microscopic spores within the fungi’s ascus, exhibit characteristic color patterns based on mutant type and are readily observable under a microscope. The arrangement of ascospores is used to estimate percentage of crossover between the centromere and the gene that controls spore color. Supplied in Sordaria growth medium. Incubate at 30°C.
