DNA:DNA hybridization studies of the homothallic species ofNeurospora showed that the repeated DNA sequences provided no means of distinction among them. Hybridization with nonrepeated DNA sequences, however, showed that theN. terricola species was quite unlike the others. These studies suggest that heterothallism might have evolved from homothallism inNeurospora.
