The Paleozoic Origin of Enzymatic Lignin Decomposition Reconstructed from 31 Fungal Genomes
Dating Wood Rot Specific lineages within the basidiomycete fungi, white rot species, have evolved the ability to break up a major structural component of woody plants, lignin, relative to theirExpand

The phylogenetic distribution of resupinate forms across the major clades of mushroom‐forming fungi (Homobasidiomycetes)
Abstract Phylogenetic relationships of resupinate Homobasidiomycetes (Corticiaceae s. lat. and others) were studied using ribosomal DNA (rDNA) sequences from a broad sample of resupinate andExpand

Molecular systematics and biological diversification of Boletales
Historical patterns of morphological evolution and ecology in the Boletales are largely unresolved but appear to involve extensive convergence. We studied phylogenetic relationships of BoletalesExpand

Phylogenetic and phylogenomic overview of the Polyporales
We present a phylogenetic and phylogenomic overview of the Polyporales. The newly sequenced genomes of Bjerkandera adusta, Ganoderma sp., and Phlebia brevispora are introduced and an overview of 10Expand

Assembling the fungal tree of life: progress, classification, and evolution of subcellular traits.
Based on an overview of progress in molecular systematics of the true fungi (Fungi/Eumycota) since 1990, little overlap was found among single-locus data matrices, which explains why no large-scaleExpand

Introducing the Consolidated Species Concept to resolve species in the Teratosphaeriaceae
The Teratosphaeriaceae represents a recently established family that includes numerous saprobic, extremophilic, human opportunistic, and plant pathogenic fungi. Partial DNA sequence data of the 28SExpand

Evolution of helotialean fungi (Leotiomycetes, Pezizomycotina): a nuclear rDNA phylogeny.
The highly divergent characters of morphology, ecology, and biology in the Helotiales make it one of the most problematic groups in traditional classification and molecular phylogeny. Sequences ofExpand

Phylogenetic overview of the Boletineae.
The generic and sub-generic relationships in the Boletineae (Boletales) were studied using nuclear large subunit (nuc-lsu), translation elongation factor 1-alpha (tef1), and DNA directed RNAExpand

Amylocorticiales ord. nov. and Jaapiales ord. nov.: Early diverging clades of Agaricomycetidae dominated by corticioid forms
The Agaricomycetidae is one of the most morphologically diverse clades of Basidiomycota that includes the well known Agaricales and Boletales, which are dominated by pileate-stipitate forms, and theExpand

The Plant Cell Wall–Decomposing Machinery Underlies the Functional Diversity of Forest Fungi
Comparative genomic analysis of “dry rot” fungus shows both convergent evolution and divergence among fungal decomposers. Brown rot decay removes cellulose and hemicellulose from wood—residual ligninExpand
