A phylum-level phylogenetic classification of zygomycete fungi based on genome-scale data
It is demonstrated that zygomycetes comprise two major clades that form a paraphyletic grade, and the phyla Mucoromycota and ZoopagomyCota are circumscribed.
A global meta‐analysis of Tuber ITS rDNA sequences: species diversity, host associations and long‐distance dispersal
It is estimated that Tuber contains a minimum of 180 species and species in Excavatum, Maculatum and Rufum clades exhibit preference for angiosperm hosts, whereas those in the Gibbosum clade are preferential towards gymnosperms.
Widespread adenine N6-methylation of active genes in fungi
Using single-molecule long-read sequencing of 16 diverse fungal genomes, it is observed that up to 2.8% of all adenines were methylated in early-diverging fungi, far exceeding levels observed in other eukaryotes and more derived fungi.

Comparative genomics of Mortierella elongata and its bacterial endosymbiont Mycoavidus cysteinexigens
Independent comparative phylogenomic analyses of fungal and bacterial genomes are consistent with an ancient origin for M. elongata - M. cysteinexigens symbiosis, most likely over 350 million years ago and concomitant with the terrestrialization of Earth and diversification of land fungi and plants.
Phylogenetic lineages in Entomophthoromycota
This review provides a detailed discussion about the biology and taxonomy of five major lineages of Entomophthoromycota, including the subfamily Erynioideae which includes Zoophthora and allied genera.
Molecular phylogeny of the Entomophthoromycota.
It is suggested that entomopathogenic lineages in Entomophthoraceae probably evolved from saprobic or facultatively pathogenic ancestors during or shortly after the evolutionary radiation of the arthropods.
Structure, Function, and Phylogeny of the Mating Locus in the Rhizopus oryzae Complex
In spite of the reluctance of most strains to mate in vitro, the conserved sex locus structure and evidence for outcrossing suggest that a normal sexual cycle occurs in both species.
Sequential Utilization of Hosts from Different Fly Families by Genetically Distinct, Sympatric Populations within the Entomophthora muscae Species Complex
This study provides the first evidence of recombination and population structure within the E. muscae species complex, and illustrates the complexity of insect-fungus relationships that should be considered for development of biological control methods.
Phylogenetic and Phylogenomic Definition of Rhizopus Species
A comparative analysis of the mating type locus across Rhizopus reveals that its structure is flexible even between different species in the same genus, but shows similarities between rhizopus and other mucoralean fungi.
