Illumina-based de novo transcriptome sequencing and analysis of Amanita exitialis basidiocarps.
The molecular diversity of toxin gene families in lethal Amanita mushrooms.
The famous cultivated mushroom Bailinggu is a separate species of the Pleurotus eryngii species complex
The data indicate that the mushroom Bailinggu is a lineage independent of P. eryngii and should be lifted as its own species, namely P. tuoliensis.
Amanita cinereovelata, a new species of Amanita section Lepidella from Bangladesh
Molecular phylogenetic analysis indicates that A. cinereovelata is a species sister to A. eriophora, A. longipes, and A. tephrea of Amanita sect.

Genome-Wide Analysis of the Zn(II)2Cys6 Zinc Cluster-Encoding Gene Family in Tolypocladium guangdongense and Its Light-Induced Expression
Genome-wide identification and characterization of Zn(II)2Cys6 zinc-cluster gene (C6 zinc gene) family in Tolypocladium guangdongense, Cordyceps militaris and Ophiocordycep sinensis indicated that light may affect the development and metabolic processes, at least partially, through the regulation of C6 zinc genes in T. guang dongense.
Phylogenetic overview of Aureoboletus (Boletaceae, Boletales), with descriptions of six new species from China
A key to 24 known Chinese species has been provided, including six new species: A. solus, A. velutipes and a new combination A. miniatoaurantiacus proposed here.
Whole Genome Sequence of an Edible and Potential Medicinal Fungus, Cordyceps guangdongensis
This genomic resource provided a new insight into better understanding the relevance of phenotypic characters and genetic mechanisms in C. guangdongensis, and revealed a diversity of transposons that could contribute to the genome size and evolution.
Molecular cloning of α-amanitin and characterization of its expression pattern in different parts and development stages of Amanita exitialis fruitbody
Results demonstrate that α-AMA and PHA were highly homologous to the toxin genes reported from A. bisporigera; the α- AMA could be expressed in all parts and stages of the fruitbody, from late elongation stage to late mature stage, and the higher expression level was found in the pileus, followed by the stipe and volva.
A new yellow species of Craterellus (Cantharellales, Hydnaceae) from China
Craterellus luteus sp. nov. is described from China. It is characterized by a light yellow to greenish yellow pileus, white to yellowish white hymenophore, broad basidiospores and lack of aromatic…
