Rapid genetic identification and mapping of enzymatically amplified ribosomal DNA from several Cryptococcus species
A novel approach that uses the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for rapid simplified restriction typing and mapping of DNA from many different isolates is described, which ought to have wide applicability for clinical detection and other studies.
A higher-level phylogenetic classification of the Fungi.
Reconstructing the early evolution of Fungi using a six-gene phylogeny
It is indicated that there may have been at least four independent losses of the flagellum in the kingdom Fungi, and the enigmatic microsporidia seem to be derived from an endoparasitic chytrid ancestor similar to Rozella allomycis, on the earliest diverging branch of the fungal phylogenetic tree.

A quantitative PCR-based approach to estimating the relative abundances of major taxonomic groups of bacteria and fungi in soil provides a rapid and robust index of microbial community structure.

The high rate at which new sequence types were recovered even after sampling 863 fungal ITS sequences and the dominance of fungi in the authors' libraries relative to other eukaryotes suggest that the abundance and diversity of fungiIn forest soils may be much higher than previously hypothesized.
One hundred and seventeen clades of euagarics.
A phylum-level phylogenetic classification of zygomycete fungi based on genome-scale data
It is demonstrated that zygomycetes comprise two major clades that form a paraphyletic grade, and the phyla Mucoromycota and ZoopagomyCota are circumscribed.
A molecular phylogeny of the flagellated fungi (Chytridiomycota) and description of a new phylum (Blastocladiomycota).
The phylogeny suggests that Chytridiomycota is not monophyletic and there are four major lineages of chytrids: Rozella spp.
Major clades of Agaricales: a multilocus phylogenetic overview
An overview of the phylogeny of the Agaricales is presented based on a multilocus analysis of a six-gene region supermatrix, which recovered six major clades, which are recognized informally and labeled theAgaricoid, Tricholomatoid, Marasmioid, Pluteoid, Hygrophoroid and Plicaturopsidoid clades.
Assembling the fungal tree of life: progress, classification, and evolution of subcellular traits.
This study provides a phylogenetic synthesis for the Fungi and a framework for future phylogenetic studies on fungi and the impact of this newly discovered phylogenetic structure on supraordinal classifications is discussed.
