Nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region as a universal DNA barcode marker for Fungi
Six DNA regions were evaluated as potential DNA barcodes for Fungi, the second largest kingdom of eukaryotic life, by a multinational, multilaboratory consortium. The region of the mitochondrialExpand

A multigene phylogeny of the Dothideomycetes using four nuclear loci
We present an expanded multigene phylogeny of the Dothideomycetes. The final data matrix consisted of four loci (nuc SSU rDNA, nuc LSU rDNA, TEF1, RPB2) for 96 taxa, representing five of the sevenExpand

An overview of the systematics of the Sordariomycetes based on a four-gene phylogeny.
The Sordariomycetes is one of the largest classes in the Ascomycota, and the majority of its species are characterized by perithecial ascomata and inoperculate unitunicate asci. It includes more thanExpand

Indoor fungal composition is geographically patterned and more diverse in temperate zones than in the tropics
Fungi are ubiquitous components of indoor human environments, where most contact between humans and microbes occurs. The majority of these organisms apparently play a neutral role, but some areExpand

Prospects for fungus identification using CO1 DNA barcodes, with Penicillium as a test case
DNA barcoding systems employ a short, standardized gene region to identify species. A 648-bp segment of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase 1 (CO1) is the core barcode region for animals, but itsExpand

Quantifying microbial communities with 454 pyrosequencing: does read abundance count?
Pyrosequencing technologies have revolutionized how we describe and compare complex microbial communities. In 454 pyrosequencing data sets, the abundance of reads pertaining to taxa or phylotypes isExpand

Leptographium wingfieldii introduced into North America and found associated with exotic Tomicus piniperda and native bark beetles.
Leptographium wingfieldii is a well-known fungal associate of the pine shoot beetle, Tomicus piniperda, in Europe. This fungus is pathogenic to pines and is an important cause of blue-stain in theExpand
