Multi-gene phylogenies define Ceratocystiopsis and Grosmannia distinct from Ophiostoma
TLDR
DNA sequence data from combined partial nuclear LSU and β-tubulin genes are used to consider the phylogenetic relationships of 50 Ophiostoma species, representing all the major morphological groups in the genus, and reveal additional lineages linked to morphological characters. Expand
Multi-gene phylogeny for Ophiostoma spp. reveals two new species from Protea infructescences
TLDR
Molecular data suggest that adaptation to the Protea infructescence niche by Ophiostoma spp. Expand
First fungal genome sequence from Africa: A preliminary analysis
TLDR
This project sequenced the genome of Fusarium circinatum, a fungal pathogen of pine that causes pitch canker, a disease of great concern to the South African forestry industry and the first eukaryotic organism for which the complete genome has been sequenced locally. Expand
