Draft genomes for the fungi Ceratocystis fagacearum, C. harringtonii, Grosmannia penicillata, and Huntiella bhutanensis are presented. Ceratocystis fagacearum is a major causal agent of vascular wilt of oaks and other trees in the family Fagaceae. Ceratocystis harringtonii, previously known as C. populicola, causes disease in Populus species in the USA and Canada. Grosmannia penicillata is the causal agent of bluestain of sapwood on various conifers, including Picea spp. and Pinus spp. in… 

IMA Genome-F 8

The genomes of Cercospora zeina, Fusarium pininemorale, Hawksworthiomyces lignivorus, Huntiella decipiens, and Ophiostoma ips are presented in this genome announcement. Three of these genomes are

Co-adaptations between Ceratocystidaceae ambrosia fungi and the mycangia of their associated ambrosia beetles

Four unrelated lineages of ambrosia beetles with unique mycangia were found to carry ambrosian fungi in five genera of Ceratocystidaceae, which supported six new genera and seventeen new species of fungi.

Novel species of Huntiella from naturally-occurring forest trees in Greece and South Africa

Two new species of Huntiella species are revealed; one from Platanus orientalis in Greece and one from Colophospermum mopane and Senegalia nigrescens in South Africa; the former was found to have a homothallic and the latter a heterothallic mating system.

Nine draft genome sequences of Claviceps purpurea, including C. arundinis, C. humidiphila, and C. cf. spartinae, pseudomolecules for the pitch canker pathogen Fusarium circinatum, draft genome of Davidsoniella eucalypti, Grosmannia galeiformis, Quambalaria eucalypti, and Teratosphaeria destru

The pine pathogen genome of Fusarium circinatum has been assembled into pseudomolecules, based on additional sequence data and by harnessing the known synteny within the Fusaria fujikuroi species complex, to enable more robust genomic comparisons within this species complex.

Phylogenetic and phylogenomic analyses reveal two new genera and three new species of ophiostomatalean fungi from termite fungus combs

Culture-based studies showed that these species do not depend on the Termitomyces comb material for growth, and two new genera were introduced to accommodate these ophiostomatalean species.

Bretziella, a new genus to accommodate the oak wilt fungus, Ceratocystis fagacearum (Microascales, Ascomycota)

The Tree Protection Cooperative Programme (TPCP), the NRF/DST Centre of Excellence in Tree Health Biotechnology (CTHB), and the University of Pretoria are collaborating on tree health biotechnology research in South Africa.

Phylogenomic incongruence in Ceratocystis: a clue to speciation?

Evidence is provided of interspecific hybridization within Ceratocystis, the role of hybridization as the source of discordance will require further research because the results could also be explained by high levels of shared ancestral polymorphism in this recently diverged lineage.



Draft genomes of Amanita jacksonii, Ceratocystis albifundus, Fusarium circinatum, Huntiella omanensis, Leptographium procerum, Rutstroemia sydowiana , and Sclerotinia echinophila

These seven genomes are from a number of fungal pathogens and economically important species and will add to the growing body of knowledge of these fungi and provide a value resource to researchers studying these fungi.

Draft genome sequences of Armillaria fuscipes, Ceratocystiopsis minuta, Ceratocystis adiposa, Endoconidiophora laricicola, E-polonica and Penicillium freii DAOMC 242723

These genomes include the first reports of genomes for the genus Endoconidiophora, and the availability of these genome data will provide opportunities to resolve longstanding questions regarding the taxonomy of species in these genera.

Draft genome sequences of Chrysoporthe austroafricana, Diplodia scrobiculata, Fusarium nygamai, Leptographium lundbergii, Limonomyces culmigenus, Stagonosporopsis tanaceti, and Thielaviopsis punctulata

The availability of these genome data will provide opportunities to resolve longstanding questions regarding the taxonomy of species in these genera, and may contribute to the understanding of the lifestyles through comparative studies with closely related organisms.

Based on morphological characteristics, comparisons of DNA sequence data and its unique ecology, the name C. bhutanensis sp.

Grosmannia and Leptographium spp. associated with conifer-infesting bark beetles in Finland and Russia, including Leptographium taigense sp. nov.

The overall results indicate that the diversity of Grosmannia species in the boreal forests remains poorly understood and that further studies are needed to clarify the status of several species or species complexes.

IMA Genome-F 1: Ceratocystis fimbriata

The draft nuclear genome of Ceratocystis fimbriata, the type species of Ceratocystis, is comprised of 29 410 862 bp. De novo gene prediction produced 7 266 genes, which is low for an ascomycete

Obligate biotrophy features unraveled by the genomic analysis of rust fungi

The dramatic up-regulation of transcripts coding for small secreted proteins, secreted hydrolytic enzymes, and transporters in planta suggests that they play a role in host infection and nutrient acquisition.

Phylogeny and taxonomy of the North American clade of the Ceratocystis fimbriata complex.

Based on the phylogenetic evidence, interfertility, host specialization and morphology, the oak and cherry lineages are recognized as the earlier described C. fimbriata sensu stricto, and a new species associated with the bark beetle Scolytus quadrispinosus on Carya is closely related to C. caryae.

New proteins orthologous to cerato-platanin in various Ceratocystis species and the purification and characterization of cerato-populin from Ceratocystis populicola

Natural variants of cerato-platanin (CP), a pathogen associated molecular pattern (PAMP) protein produced by Ceratocystis platani (the causal agent of the plane canker stain), have been found to be
