Genome sequencing and analysis of the versatile cell factory Aspergillus niger CBS 513.88
The filamentous fungus Aspergillus niger is widely exploited by the fermentation industry for the production of enzymes and organic acids, particularly citric acid, and the sequenced genome revealed a large number of major facilitator superfamily transporters and fungal zinc binuclear cluster transcription factors.
Insights from the genome of the biotrophic fungal plant pathogen Ustilago maydis
The discovery of the secreted protein gene clusters and the functional demonstration of their decisive role in the infection process illuminate previously unknown mechanisms of pathogenicity operating in biotrophic fungi.
Genome sequence of the model mushroom Schizophyllum commune
The wood-degrading fungus Schizophyllum commune is both a genetically tractable model for studying mushroom development and a likely source of enzymes capable of efficient degradation of lignocellulosic biomass.
Development in Aspergillus
The molecular mechanisms underlying growth and development of Aspergillus are described, including conidiophores and ascocarps are produced that form conidia and ascospores, respectively.

Evidence indicates that these protein structures also contribute to colonization by activating host proteases that are involved in haemostasis, inflammation and remodelling of the extracellular matrix.
Fabrication factors influencing mechanical, moisture- and water-related properties of mycelium-based composites
The formation of the rodlet layer of streptomycetes is the result of the interplay between rodlins and chaplins
Evidence is presented that rodlet formation is conserved in the streptomycetes, and expression per aerial hypha was similar to that in the wild‐type strain, indicating that expression of the rdl genes is initiated after the hypha has sensed that it has grown into the air.
Genome sequence of the button mushroom Agaricus bisporus reveals mechanisms governing adaptation to a humic-rich ecological niche
Observations reveal genetic and enzymatic mechanisms governing adaptation to the humic-rich ecological niche formed during plant degradation, further defining the critical role such fungi contribute to soil structure and carbon sequestration in terrestrial ecosystems.
