Genetics and Morphogenesis in the Basidiomycetes documents the proceedings of a symposium on Genetics and Morphogenetic Studies of Basidiomycetes held during the Second International Mycological Congress. The symposium was organized as a memorial symposium to honor the many contributions of John Robert Raper, which included the hormonal control of sexual development in fungi; the biological effects of beta radiation; and the genetic control of the incompatibility systems and morphogenesis of sexuality in higher basidiomycetes.
The contributions made by researchers at the symposium include studies on control of development by genes of the incompatibility system; the genetic structure of the incompatibility factors of the higher basidiomycetes; and meiosis and recombination in basidiomycetes. Subsequent chapters deal with the evolution of incompatibility; the incompatibility system as a model for the regulation of cell differentiation; morphogentic processes in Schizophyllum commune and Coprinus lagopus; and the regulatory processes which control fruiting.
