Dispensable genes?

Hi All,

I am currently compiling a list of cloned non-essential or dispensable genes 
in filamentous fungi. This is partly related to previous 
recent questions on this group about horizontal gene transfer on this 
bionet group. Non-essential in this sense means that they are not required 
for growth on complete medium in axenic culture. At the moment the 
list includes toxin and secondary metabolite synthesising 
enzymes/genes, transposons, toxin/phytoalexin metabolising genes -

any other suggestions and/or references would be appreciated.
