Flaherty, Patrick J.
To identify genes important for growth, we generated conditional mutants that experience loss of growth at high temperature (CLoG mutants). We outcrossed one of these mutants, CLoG4, to a polymorphic strain and sequenced the whole genome of a pool of segregants that maintained temperature sensitivity to map the mutation causing the phenotype. I also performed a rescue experiment to confirm the identity of the phenotype-causing mutation of a second strain, CLoG1, which had already been mapped.
