A phylogenetic hypothesis of Ustilaginomycotina based on multiple gene analyses and morphological data1
TLDR
The most recent consensus as to the phylogeny of this group is presented and Entorrhizomycetes, ExobasidiomycETes and Ceraceosorales are proposed as new taxa, and the description of Ustilaginomycets is emended. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Ustilago, Sporisorium, and related taxa based on combined analyses of rDNA sequences.
Combined analyses of ITS and LSU rDNA sequences were utilized to resolve the phylogenetic relationships of 98 members of the smut genera Lundquistia, Melanopsichium, Moesziomyces, Macalpinomyces,Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Ustilago and Sporisorium species (Basidiomycota, Ustilaginales) based on internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences
TLDR
Neighbor-joining and Bayesian inferences of phylogeny indicate the monophyly of a bipartite genus Sporisorium and the monophylie of a core Ustilago clade and indicate a putative connection between UStilago maydis and SporisOrium. Expand
A phylogenetic hypothesis of Ustilaginomycotina based on multiple gene analyses and morphological data.
TLDR
The most recent consensus as to the phylogeny of this group is presented and Entorrhizomycetes, ExobasidiomycETes and Ceraceo- sorales are proposed as new taxa, and the description of UstilaginomyCetes is emended. Expand
The generic position of Ustilago maydis, Ustilago scitaminea, and Ustilago esculenta (Ustilaginales)
TLDR
Three species of smut fungi of economic importance, Ustilago maydis on corn, U. scitaminea on sugar cane, and U. esculenta on Zizania latifolia, were investigated in order to define their systematic position using morphological characteristics of the sori, ultrastructure of teliospore walls, and molecular data of the LSU rDNA.

Identification and inter-relationship analysis of Bradyrhizobium japonicum strains by restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) and random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD)
TLDR
The RFLP and RAPD banding patterns of different strains were used to calculate genetic divergence and to construct phylogenetic trees, allowing studies on the relationships between the strains and allowed closely related strains to be distinguished. Expand
Rediscovery of oxudercine type specimens (Teleostei: Gobiidae) assumed destroyed during World War II
TLDR
Type material for six species and ten subspecies of the oxudercine genus Periophthalmus in the collection of the Phyletic Museum in Jena, Germany is rediscovered and detailed accounts of the historical figures involved in safeguarding them during the tumultuous war years are provided. Expand
