patent description
The present invention provides, inter alia, dmaW nucleic acid sequences and the proteins for which they encode. Also provided are methods for the utilization of knockout mutants of the sequences which are useful for engineering ergot alkaloid-deficient fungal symbionts (endophytes) of plants. Other methods and materials related to these sequences are also provided.
