Disruption of ZtSof1 impacts the melanization of Zymoseptoria tritici. The defective fusion mutant was significantly less melanized than the ΔZtKu70 and ΔZtSof1-comp strains, which exhibited higher melanin accumulation over time. Bars represent standard errors of the mean gray values on at least 40 colonies. Different letters on the top of the bars indicate a significant difference among the tested strains according to the analysis of variance (ANOVA). The notch displays a 95% confidence interval of the median. Open circles represent the outlier values of each strain. Pictures shown below the bar plot represent the melanization level of ΔZtKu70, ΔZtSof1, and ΔZtSof1-comp strains. Gray value scale (0 = black and 255 = white) is shown on the left
