Neurospora crassa (NC12)

About the Neurospora_crassa genome

Neurospora crassa is a red bread mold of the phylum Ascomycota which is widely used in genetics as a model organism. The Neurospora genome, published in 2003, is approximately 40 Mb in size, and encodes about 10,000 protein-coding genes. The Genome analysis has revealed that Neurospora possesses a wide variety of epigenetics mechanisms and related genome defence mechanisms, including a process unique to fungi called Repeat-Induced Point mutation (RIP).
