A higher-level phylogenetic classification of the Fungi.
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.
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.
Detection of Seven Major Evolutionary Lineages in Cyanobacteria Based on the 16S rRNA Gene Sequence Analysis with New Sequences of Five Marine Synechococcus Strains
Analysis of 16S rRNA gene phylogeny by the maximum-likelihood and neighbor-joining methods combined with rate homogeneous and heterogeneous models revealed seven major evolutionary lineages of the cyanobacteria, including prochlorophycean organisms.
The Ascomycota tree of life: a phylum-wide phylogeny clarifies the origin and evolution of fundamental reproductive and ecological traits.
A 6-gene, 420-species maximum-likelihood phylogeny of Ascomycota, the largest phylum of Fungi, and a phylogenetic informativeness analysis of all 6 genes and a series of ancestral character state reconstructions support a terrestrial, saprobic ecology as ancestral are presented.

A molecular-based phylogeny including recognized representatives of the Zygomycetes and TrichomycETes with a combined dataset for nuclear rRNA 18S (SSU), 5.8S and 28S (LSU) genes is presented.
Early diverging Ascomycota: phylogenetic divergence and related evolutionary enigmas.
To answer controversial questions on the origin, monophyly and evolution of the Taphrinomycotina, additional integrated phylogenetic analyses might be necessary using sequences of more genes with broader taxon sampling from the early diverging Ascomycota.

A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S ribosomal rDNA sequences revealed that the misclassified Zoogloea remigera IAM 12670T was located in the beta subclass of the class Proteobacteria with members of the genus Telluria as its closest relatives.
Is Penicillium monophyletic? An evaluation of phylogeny in the family Trichocomaceae from 18S, 5.8S and ITS ribosomal DNA sequence data.
Using ribosomal DNA sequences from 17 fungi, the monophylly of Penicillium and the phylogeny in the ascomycete family Trichocomaceae (= Eurotiaceae) is evaluated and the 5.8S and 5.7S motifs are determined.
Phylogenetic divergence of the entomophthoralean fungi: Evidence from nuclear 18S ribosomal RNA gene sequences
To analyze the phylogeny and molecular evolution of the entomophthoralean fungi, we deter? mined the small subunit nuclear ribosomal RNA gene sequences for four representative species of the En-…
