Among the regions of the ribosomal cistron, the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region has the highest probability of successful identification for the broadest range of fungi, with the most clearly defined barcode gap between inter- and intraspecific variation.
Reference sequence (RefSeq) database at NCBI: current status, taxonomic expansion, and functional annotation
The approach to utilizing available RNA-Seq and other data types in the authors' manual curation process for vertebrate, plant, and other species is summarized, and a new direction for prokaryotic genomes and protein name management is described.
A higher-level phylogenetic classification of the Fungi.
The Revised Classification of Eukaryotes
This revision of the classification of eukaryotes retains an emphasis on the protists and incorporates changes since 2005 that have resolved nodes and branches in phylogenetic trees.
Reconstructing the early evolution of Fungi using a six-gene phylogeny
It is indicated that there may have been at least four independent losses of the flagellum in the kingdom Fungi, and the enigmatic microsporidia seem to be derived from an endoparasitic chytrid ancestor similar to Rozella allomycis, on the earliest diverging branch of the fungal phylogenetic tree.
Diverse Lifestyles and Strategies of Plant Pathogenesis Encoded in the Genomes of Eighteen Dothideomycetes Fungi
The 18 Dothideomycetes offer an extensive catalogue of genes involved in cellulose degradation, proteolysis, secondary metabolism, and cysteine-rich small secreted proteins, suggesting faster evolution because of the effects of repeat induced point (RIP) mutations.
Assembling the fungal tree of life: progress, classification, and evolution of subcellular traits.
This study provides a phylogenetic synthesis for the Fungi and a framework for future phylogenetic studies on fungi and the impact of this newly discovered phylogenetic structure on supraordinal classifications is discussed.
An overview of the systematics of the Sordariomycetes based on a four-gene phylogeny.
The phylogenetic relationship among 106 taxa from 12 orders out of 16 in the Sordariomycetes was investigated based on four nuclear loci, and most of the orders are recognized as monophyletic groups.
A multigene phylogeny of the Dothideomycetes using four nuclear loci
An expanded multigene phylogeny of the Dothideomycetes is presented and a new order of Botryosphaeriales is proposed based on strong molecular support for the placement of Mycosphaerellaceae and Piedraiaceae within the Capnodiales and introduce Davidiellaceae as a new family to accommodate species of Davidiella with Cladosporium anamorphs.
