Neurospora mutants are described well in a review:
Perkins, et al Microbiol. Rev. 46:426-570.
There are three loci at which mutants conferring an albino phenotype are known: al-1, al-2,
These, and many other stocks as well as other information are available from the Fungal
Genetic Stock Center:
I am less familiar with Aspergillus mutants. I believe that there are many more collections
of A. nidulans mutants than of A. niger. Although I know that many color mutants are known, I
do not know which loci confer albino phenotypes. The Stock Center also collects A. nidulans
mutants and, I think, has some A. niger stocks.
