FUSARIUM-ID v. 1.0, a publicly available database of partial translation elongation factor 1-alpha (TEF) DNA sequences, presently representing a selected sample of the diversity of the genus diversity, with excellent representation of Type-B trichothecene toxin producers, and the Gibberella fujikuroi, Fusarium oxysporum and F. solani species complexes.
Molecular Phylogenetic Diversity, Multilocus Haplotype Nomenclature, and In Vitro Antifungal Resistance within the Fusarium solani Species Complex
The in vitro activities of 10 antifungals tested against 19 isolates representing 18 species that span the breadth of the FSSC phylogeny show that members of this complex are broadly resistant to these drugs.
An overview of the systematics of the Sordariomycetes based on a four-gene phylogeny.
The phylogenetic relationship among 106 taxa from 12 orders out of 16 in the Sordariomycetes was investigated based on four nuclear loci, and most of the orders are recognized as monophyletic groups.
Members of the Fusarium solani species complex that cause infections in both humans and plants are common in the environment.
Internet-Accessible DNA Sequence Database for Identifying Fusaria from Human and Animal Infections
A three-locus DNA sequence database is constructed to facilitate molecular identification of the 69 Fusarium species associated with human or animal mycoses encountered in clinical microbiology laboratories.
One fungus, one name: defining the genus Fusarium in a scientifically robust way that preserves longstanding use.
This phylogenetically guided circumscription will free scientists from any obligation to use other genus names for species nested within this clade, and preserve the application of the name Fusarium in the way it has been used for almost a century.
Molecular phylogeny of Melanospora and similar pyrenomycetous fungi
An analysis based on characters derived from deduced amino acids from the second largest subunit of the RNA polymerase II (RPB2) gene further supports the close relationship of Melanospora and Hypocreales.
Finding needles in haystacks: linking scientific names, reference specimens and molecular data for Fungi
A set of standards and protocols are proposed to improve the data quality of new sequences, and it is suggested how type and other reference sequences can be used to improve identification of Fungi.

The first extensive multilocus sequence typing (MLST) survey of plumbing drain-associated Fusarium isolates revealed that the six most common STs in sinks were identical to the sixmost frequently associated with human infections.
