AIMS To predict the risk factors for building infestation by Serpula lacrymans, which is one of the most destructive fungi causing timber decay in buildings. METHODS AND RESULTS The growth rate was assessed on malt extract agar media at temperatures between 1.5 and 45°C, at water activity (a(w)) over the range of 0.800-0.993 and at pH ranges from 1.5 to(More)
Different mating systems have evolved in the fungal kingdom, including a tetrapolar multiallelic mating system in many basidiomycetes. In tetrapolar species, the presence of different alleles at two mating loci (MAT A and MAT B) is necessary for mating to occur. The tetrapolar fungus Serpula lacrymans causes wood-decay in buildings in temperate regions(More)
Early detection of indoor wood-decay fungi is crucial to prevent building deterioration and thereby avoid considerable economic loss. Due to their increased sensitivity, two reliable DNA-based fingerprinting techniques, capillary electrophoresis single-strand conformation polymorphism (CE-SSCP) and denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC),(More)
In this study the genetic variation and population structure in a French population of the dry rot fungus S. lacrymans was investigated using 14 microsatellites markers and compared to the rest of Europe. In that comparison the French population possessed the same allelic diversity as rest of Europe. A weak geographic structuring of the genetic variation(More)
