A major goal of the Assembling the Fungal Tree of Life project is to create a searchable database of selected ultrastructural and biochemical characters from published and new data for use in phylogenetic and other analyses. While developing this database such issues as evaluating specimen fixation quality in published micrographs, organizing data to accommodate characters that were dependent on location and developmental stage, and requiring accountability of data contributors were addressed… Expand
9 Subcellular Structure and Biochemical Characters in Fungal Phylogeny
TLDR
The past and potential roles of ultrastructural and biochemical characters in understanding fungal phylogeny are clarified and the role of the Fungal Subcellular Ontology in promoting data retrieval for use in related cellular, genetic, and ecological studies is discussed. Expand
The search for the fungal tree of life.
TLDR
Progress in developing a phylogenetic classification of Fungi since Darwin's On the Origin of Species is reviewed and some fungus-like heterotrophs have been shown to belong elsewhere, and several groups of enigmatic eukaryotic microbes have been added to theFungi. Expand
The Fungal Tree of Life: from Molecular Systematics to Genome-Scale Phylogenies.
TLDR
This article reviews the major phyla, subphyla, and classes of the kingdom Fungi and provides brief summaries of ecologies, morphologies, and exemplar taxa and examples of how molecular phylogenetics and evolutionary genomics have advanced the understanding of fungal evolution within each of the phyla and some of the major classes.

Research and teaching with the AFTOL SBD: an informatics resource for fungal subcellular and biochemical data
TLDR
The Structural and Biochemical Database, developed as part of the US NSF-funded Assembling the Fungal Tree of Life, is a major resource to present and manage morphological and biochemical information on Fungi and serves as a phyloinformatics tool for the scientific community. Expand
Conservation of cytoplasmic organization in the cystidia of Suillus species
TLDR
The first study showing ultrastructural details and cytological functions of the cystidium to be conserved in two closely related species is presented, suggesting that ultrastructureural details of cystidia may provide a suite of phylogenetically informative characters. Expand
Impact of DNA sequence-data on the taxonomy of anamorphic fungi
TLDR
The historical establishment and limitations of the dual system of classification is reviewed, the possible utilities of DNA sequence-data in developing a system of Classification based on evolutionary relationships are narrated, and emerging phylogenetic and nomenclatural scenarios in the Botryosphaeriales, Chaetospha aeriales, Fusarium graminearum, pestalotiopsis-like anamorphs, and the Mycosphaerella complex are illustrated. Expand
Towards an integrated phylogenetic classification of the Tremellomycetes
TLDR
Based on the results inferred from molecular data and morphological and physiochemical features, an updated classification for the Tremellomycetes is proposed and five orders, 17 families and 54 genera are accepted, including seven new families and 18 new genera. Expand
Using phylogeny and ultrastructure to study cystidia of two Psathyrella species: reciprocal illumination
TLDR
This study revealed many common cystidial characteristics between the two closely related species examined, including well-formed apical crystals, abundant free ribosomes, and scattered smooth endoplasmic reticulum. Expand
Toward a Fully Resolved Fungal Tree of Life.
TLDR
The current status and future challenges for fully elucidating the fungal tree of life are discussed and methods to recover the most accurate species tree given the sea of gene trees are discussed. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the Entomophthoromycota.
TLDR
It is suggested that entomopathogenic lineages in Entomophthoraceae probably evolved from saprobic or facultatively pathogenic ancestors during or shortly after the evolutionary radiation of the arthropods. Expand

Research Coordination Networks: a phylogeny for kingdom Fungi (Deep Hypha)
TLDR
The phylogenetic classification in this issue of Mycologia is a product of the AFTOL project and many other independent research initiatives, and it is an initial synthesis of a working classification designed to be used for all major publications that require a phylogenetic Classification of fungi.

Reconstructing the early evolution of Fungi using a six-gene phylogeny
TLDR
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.

An overview of the higher level classification of Pucciniomycotina based on combined analyses of nuclear large and small subunit rDNA sequences.
TLDR
This study confirms Pucciniomycotina as a monophyletic group of Basidiomycota and assembles a dataset of previously published and newly generated sequence data from two nuclear rDNA genes including exemplars from all known major groups in order to test hypotheses about evolutionary relationships among the Pucciniales.

Molecular phylogenetics of the Chytridiomycota supports the utility of ultrastructural data in chytrid systematics
TLDR
A phylogeny of ribosomal DNA sequences coding for the small subunit gene of 54 chytrids, with emphasis on sampling the largest order, the Chytridiales, revealed homoplasy in several developmental and zoosporangial characters and suggested that the divergence times of these groups may be ancient.

Evolution of gilled mushrooms and puffballs inferred from ribosomal DNA sequences.
TLDR
A comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of homobasidiomycetes, using sequences from nuclear and mitochondrial ribosomal DNA, with an emphasis on understanding evolutionary relationships of gilled mushrooms and puffballs, suggested that strikingly similar gilled mushroom evolved at least six times, from morphologically diverse precursors.
