From: Genome sequencing of evolved aspergilli populations reveals robust genomes, transversions in A. flavus, and sexual aberrancy in non-homologous end-joining mutants

Fig. 4

The spectrum of mutation types differs between the three Aspergillus species. a Average number of base-substitution mutations in the wild-type (WT) and ∆ku70 mutant (KU) of each species. In A. flavus, the number of transversions is higher than the number of transitions, opposite to what was found in A. fumigatus. In A. nidulans, the number of transitions is higher than the number of transversions in the wild-type strain but not in the ∆ku70 mutant. b Average number of indel mutations in the wild-type and ∆ku70 mutant of each species. The number of indels is higher in A. nidulans than in the other two aspergilli, but in this case, the ∆ku70 mutation seems to protect the genome against indels opposite to what happens in the other two aspergilli. Error bars show the standard error of the mean. Statistically significant differences are shown with *P < 0.05 and **P < 0.01 (one-tailed t test)
