Summary

We describe the construction of an RFLP-based genetic map of the white rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium ME446. The map is deduced from the allele distributions of 38 RFLP markers in a test set of 53 meiotically derived haploid recombinants of this strain. The map includes a cellulase gene, a mating-type locus and a family of lignin peroxidase (and related) genes that are arranged in two unlinked clusters.
