I am inclined to suggest to the Neurospora policy committee that we
consider changing gene designations to match current usage for S.
cerevisiae.  There are many reasons for this, most of them are obvious. 
Currently a gene such as cpc-1 is written (in italics) cpc-1, the mutant is
(in italics) cpc-1-, the protein is CPC1.  In S. cerevisiae usage this
would be the gene (in italics) CPC1, a mutant, (in italics) cpc1 and the
protein Cpc1p.
