Article

Summary

300 mutants blocked in meiosis or sporulation were isolated in Schizosaccharomyces pombe and grouped by complementation tests, linkage studies and cytological observation. In total, 5 genes pertaining to meiosis and 18 genes necessary for sporulation could be identified. In addition, a gene participating in dissolution of the separating walls during cell fusion was detected.
