The Filamentous Fungi

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses how Neurospora and Aspergillus reemerged in the 1980s as model filamentous fungi rather than models of life. It shows that work on model filamentous fungi never died, and indeed many careers will be devoted to further research in these organisms.

Keywords: Neurospora; Aspergillus; filamentous fungi; model organisms
