Table 2 Mutations within and outside of coding regions in N. crassa. For each genomic region, i.e., within duplicates (defined by Dup-Blast), near duplicates (400 bp upstream and downstream flanking regions), and non-duplicates, the mutations were counted within and without CDS. For cross lines, the numbers are given as “number of mutations per genome per sexual cycle.” For asexual lines, the numbers are given as “number of mutations per conidium per day for asexual cycle.” The C→T or G→A mutations within or near duplicates are given in square brackets

From: Repeat-induced point mutation in Neurospora crassa causes the highest known mutation rate and mutational burden of any cellular life
