FGSC 988, Neurospora crassa wild-type, on minimal medium. The Neurospora genome was sequenced at the Broad Institute. The FGSC logo was redesigned in 2016 by Michael Awua-Duah of Kansas State University to be inclusive of all filamentous fungi in the FGSC collection
FGSC A4 grown on minimal for two days. This is the Aspergillus nidulans strain used for the A. nidulans genome Cryptococcus neoformans wild type and pex6 mutant expressing a peroxisome-targeted fluorescent protein. Cell walls stained with calcofluor white.

FGSC 9075, the Fusarium graminearum strain that had it's genome sequenced Cryptococcus neoformans pseudohyphal mutant strain (cbk1 insertion mutant, ie. the homolog of cot-1 of Neurospora crassa). Cell wall stained with calcofluor white and nuclei with Sytox green. [Image taken by Felicia Walton and provided by A. Idnurm]
