  • a Diploid strain derive from haploid strains, including FF18984, that were kindly supplied by F. Fabre.

  • b Strain congenic to A364a (see references28 and 90) and kindly supplied by T. Weinert.

  • c MEC1/SAD3/ESR1 andRAD53/MEC2/SAD1/SPK1 have been isolated and named several times. In accordance with the generally accepted use (see reference18) and for the sake of brevity, we use the namesMEC1 and RAD53.
