Same-Sex Mating Discovered in a Toxic Fungus

...nents required for mating -- including pheromones, pheromone receptors and other genes with known roles in mating -- exhibited a defect in fruiting. The newly described mating strategy might allow a single mating strain to expand rapidly by cell division, yet retain its ability to generate diversity by underg...
