Comparative genome sequence analysis underscores mycoparasitism as the ancestral life style of Trichoderma
A better understanding of mycoparasitism is offered, and the development of improved biocontrol strains for efficient and environmentally friendly protection of plants is enforced.
UP-PCR analysis and ITS1 ribotyping of strains of Trichoderma and Gliocladium
The results demonstrate that the combination of UP-PCR and ribotyping can aid in clarifying species distinction in Trichoderma and Gliocladium and has the potential to become a valuable tool for studies of diversity and genetic structure of populations of these fungi.
Fungal Beta-Glucosidases: A Bottleneck in Industrial Use of Lignocellulosic Materials
The important role beta-glucosidases play in complex biomass hydrolysis and how they create a bottleneck in industrial use of lignocellulosic materials is discussed and better alternatives to the currently available enzyme preparations are searched for.
Production of cellulolytic enzymes from ascomycetes: comparison of solid state and submerged fermentation

A PCR detection method that selectively recognizes a single biological control agent and demonstrated that universally primed PCR (UP-PCR) can identify strain-specific markers that are useful for monitoring biological control agents released into natural field soil are developed.
UP-PCR genotyping and rDNA analysis of Ascochyta pisi Lib
In studying genetic relatedness by UP-PCR among A. pisi isolates, two distinct clusters were revealed and the markers were suitable in identifying isolates and may be useful for developing isolate- or pathotype-specific PCR-based diagnostic assays.
