Two new species of Fusarium section Liseola associated with mango malformation.
Fusarium mangiferae is conspecific with strains that were previously identified as F. subglutinans and reported to be the causal agent of malformation in mango growing areas throughout the world, and Fusarium sterilihyphosum has been isolated only from malformed mango tissue in South Africa.
The protistan origins of animals and fungi.
It is suggested that any further testing of the legitimacy of this taxon should, at the least, include data from opisthokont protists, and the results underline the critical position of these "animal-fungal allies" with respect to the origin and early evolution of animals and fungi.

A phylogenomic analysis provides significant support for the paraphyly of the traditional taxon Zygomycota, and contradicts a recent proposal to include Mortierella in a phylum Mucoromycotina, and calls for broad sampling of additional genome sequences from these phyla.
Cowpea and peanut in southern Africa are nodulated by diverse Bradyrhizobium strains harboring nodulation genes that belong to the large pantropical clade common in Africa.
Diversity and evolution of Fusarium species in the Gibberella fujikuroi complex
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about the concrete properties of E. coli and its phytochemical properties.

ABSTRACT Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense, the causal agent of fusarium wilt of banana (Musa spp.), is one of the most destructive strains of the vascular wilt fungus F. oxysporum. Genetic…
Microsatellite discovery by deep sequencing of enriched genomic libraries.
This study has shown that pyrosequencing provides an outstanding new technology that can be applied to microsatellite development and was substantially more rapid, effective, and economical than other methods.
PCR-Based Identification of MAT-1 andMAT-2 in the Gibberella fujikuroi Species Complex
The results suggest that MAT allele sequences are useful indicators of phylogenetic relatedness in Gibberella fujikuroi species and other Fusarium species.

This report represents the first outbreak of pitch canker on plantation trees in South Africa and the fungus can thus no longer be considered only as a nursery pathogen in the country, where it seriously threatens the future of plantation forestry.
