Direct analysis of wood-inhabiting fungi using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis of amplified ribosomal DNA
Four different primer pairs were designed for the preferential PCR amplification of fungal SSU rDNA directly from environmental samples. Most of the amplification products obtained from a referenceExpand

Random amplified microsatellites (RAMS) — a novel method for characterizing genetic variation within fungi
Summary A novel method, Random Amplified Microsatellites (RAMS, due to the nature of amplified markers as two randomly amplified microsatellites with the intervening sequence), was applied toExpand

Description of Four Pentachlorophenol-Degrading Bacterial Strains as Sphingomonas chlorophenolica sp. nov.
Summary The chemotaxonomy, physiology and ultrastructure were studied of four pentachlorophenol (PCP) degrading strains known as Arthrobacter sp. ATCC 33790, Flavobacterium sp. ATCC 39723,Expand

Genetic variation in Phlebiopsis gigantea as detected with random amplified microsatellite (RAMS) markers
Random Amplified Microsatellite (RAMS) markers were used to detect variation among Phlebiopsis gigantea isolates from seven European countries. The scoring of 26 bands revealed five markers common toExpand

Investigations on Heterobasidion annosum s.lat. in central and eastern Asia with the aid of mating tests and DNA fingerprinting
To investigate the taxonomy of Heterobasidion in Eurasia, 49 specimens belonging to H. annosum sensu lato from Asia were identified with the aid of mating tests. Most of the specimens originated fromExpand

RNA reveals a succession of active fungi during the decay of Norway spruce logs
Current knowledge of the succession of fungi in decaying wood is mostly based on fruit bodies and in vitro culture. Here, we investigated the changing community of metabolically active fungi duringExpand

Diversity of endophytic fungi of single Norway spruce needles and their role as pioneer decomposers
The diversity of endophytic fungi within single symptomless Norway spruce needles is described and their possible role as pioneer decomposers after needle detachment is investigated. The majorityExpand

Diagnosis and discovery of fungal viruses using deep sequencing of small RNAs.
Analysis of virus-derived small RNAs with high-throughput sequencing has been successful for detecting novel viruses in plants and invertebrates. However, the applicability of this method has notExpand

A novel putative virus of Gremmeniella abietina type B (Ascomycota: Helotiaceae) has a composite genome with endornavirus affinities.
Ascospore and mycelial isolates of Gremmeniella abietina type B were found to contain three different dsRNA molecules with approximate lengths of 11, 5 and 3 kb. The 11 kb dsRNA encoded the genome ofExpand

A novel putative partitivirus of the saprotrophic fungus Heterobasidion ecrustosum infects pathogenic species of the Heterobasidion annosum complex.
We characterized the bisegmented genome of a putative double-stranded (ds) RNA virus from a Chinese isolate of the fungus Heterobasidion ecrustosum, a member of the Heterobasidion insulare speciesExpand
