Summary Recombination has been demonstrated in amyloglucosidase-producing strains of Aspergillus niger. A high-yielding strain has been crossed, parasexually, with a low-yielding strain from the same genealogy. Recombinants have been produced, having the efficient broth filtration characteristics of the low-yielding strain. One such segregant was superior, for the industrial production of amyloglucosidase, to the best parent strain previously used for that purpose.
