Restriction enzyme mediated integration (REMI) and Agrobacterium-mediated transformation (ATMT) were used to transform protoplasts or germinated conidia of the mycoparasite Coniothyrium minitans to hygromycin resistance. Using REMI, up to 32 transformants mug DNA(-1) were obtained, while 37.8 transformants 5 x 10(5) germlings(-1) were obtained using ATMT. Single-copy integrations occurred in 8% and 40% of REMI and ATMT transformants, respectively. A novel microtitre plate-based test was developed to expedite screening of 4000 REMI and ATMT C minitans transformants. Nine pathogenicity mutants that displayed reduced or no pathogenicity on sclerotia of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum were identified. (C) 2004 Federation of European Microbiological Societies.
