What is neurospora ? please describe it.

What exactly is the function of neurospora?

[C] There are a number of organism having shorter life span but they are not interesting material for genetics.

Neurospora crassa is used as genetic material because it exhibit a special feature: i.e meiotic products are linearly arranged in the form of ordered tetrads.

Neurospora is widely used in genetics as a model organism (especially N. crassa) because it is quickly reproducing, is easy to culture, and can survive on minimal media (inorganic salts, glucose, water and biotin in agar).
