Phylogenomics of a new fungal phylum reveals multiple waves of reductive evolution across Holomycota
TLDR
Results indicate that most of the hyphal morphogenesis gene repertoire of multicellular fungi had already evolved in early holomycotan lineages, and propose the designation of a novel phylum, Sanchytriomycota. Expand
Genome sequencing provides insight into the reproductive biology, nutritional mode and ploidy of the fern pathogen Mixia osmundae.
TLDR
The finding of a complete complement of mating and meiosis genes suggests the capacity to undergo sexual reproduction in Mixia osmundae, which has the smallest plant pathogenic basidiomycete genome sequenced to date. Expand
Long rDNA amplicon sequencing of insect-infecting nephridiophagids reveals their affiliation to the Chytridiomycota (Fungi) and a potential to switch between hosts
TLDR
A robust affiliation of nephridiophagids with the Chytridiomycota — a group of zoosporic fungi that comprises parasites of diverse host taxa, such as microphytes, plants, and amphibians is found. Expand
Frequency and distribution of zoosporic true fungi and heterotrophic straminipiles from river springs
TLDR
Twenty-one species of zoosporic true fungi and heterotrophic straminipiles belonging to 10 genera of the orders Blastocladiales, Hyphochytriales, Pythiale, and Saprolegniales were isolated using hemp seeds and snake skin as baits from three springs of the Biała River. Expand
Genetic transformation of Spizellomyces punctatus, a resource for studying chytrid biology and evolutionary cell biology
TLDR
It is shown that the chytrid undergoes multiple rounds of synchronous nuclear division, followed by cellularization, to create and release many daughter ‘zoospores’, which makes Spizellomyces a genetically tractable model for comparative cell biology and understanding the evolution of fungi and early eukaryotes.

A unique life-strategy of an endophytic yeast Rhodotorula mucilaginosa JGTA-S1—a comparative genomics viewpoint
  • Diya Sen, Karnelia Paul, +6 authors S. Tripathy
  • Biology, Medicine
  • DNA research : an international journal for rapid publication of reports on genes and genomes
  • 2019
TLDR
The JGTA-S1 genome data coupled with experimental evidence give an insight into the nature of its beneficial interaction with plants as well as investigating the life-strategy of the yeast from a genomics perspective. Expand
Systematic review of publicly available non-Dikarya fungal proteomes for understanding their plant biomass-degrading and bioremediation potentials
TLDR
It is strongly agree that studying genome-wide distributions of fungal CAZyme does not completely corresponds to its biomass-degrading ability, so the present study can be used as preliminary materials for selecting ideal fungal candidate for the degradation and conversion of plant biomass components, especially carbohydrates to bioethanol and other commercially valuable products. Expand
Maximizing Power in Phylogenetics and Phylogenomics: A Perspective Illuminated by Fungal Big Data.
TLDR
Insight from fungal phylogenomics is highlighted for topics including systematics and species delimitation, ecological and phenotypic diversification, and biogeography while providing an overview of progress made on the reconstruction of the fungal Tree of Life. Expand
Effect of enzymatic pretreatment of sugarcane bagasse with recombinant hemicellulases and esterase prior to the application of the cellobiohydrolase CBH I Megazyme®
The polysaccharides in the primary plant cell wall are a renewable energy source for biofuel production. However, these polysaccharides are not readily available for bioconversion, and large enzymeExpand
Seasonal Dynamics of Pelagic Mycoplanktonic Communities: Interplay of Taxon Abundance, Temporal Occurrence, and Biotic Interactions
TLDR
Mycoplankton OTUs are embedded into marine food web chains via highly complex and manifold relationships such as parasitism, predation, grazing, or allelopathy, suggesting that the dynamics of fungi harmful to other plankton groups are controlled by antagonistic fungal taxa. Expand

Phylogeny and classification of phylum Cercozoa (Protozoa).
TLDR
The protozoan phylum Cercozoa embraces numerous ancestrally biciliate zooflagellates, euglyphid and other filose testate amoebae, chlorarachnean algae, phytomyxean plant parasites, the animal-parasitic Ascetosporea, and Gromia. Expand
Eccrinales (Trichomycetes) are not fungi, but a clade of protists at the early divergence of animals and fungi.

  • 2005
TLDR
Ribosomal gene sequence analyses generated by this study do not support a close association of these orders to the Trichomycetes or to other fungi, but Eccrinales share a common ancestry with the Amoebidiales and belong to the protist class MesomyCetozoea, placed at the animal-fungi boundary. Expand
The relative ages of ectomycorrhizal mushrooms and their plant hosts estimated using Bayesian relaxed molecular clock analyses
TLDR
Topologically constrained and unconstrained analyses suggest that the root node of the Agaricomycetes is much older than either the rosids or Pinaceae, suggesting that some contemporary ECM partnerships could be of very ancient origin. Expand
Evolutionary instability of ectomycorrhizal symbioses in basidiomycetes
TLDR
The results indicate that mycorrhizal symbionts with diverse plant hosts have evolved repeatedly from saprotrophic precursors, but also that there have been multiple reversals to a free-living condition, suggesting that myCorrhizae are unstable, evolutionarily dynamic associations. Expand
Phylogeny of the "forgotten" cellular slime mold, Fonticula alba, reveals a key evolutionary branch within Opisthokonta.
TLDR
The data indicate that multicellularity in Fonticula evolved independent of that found in the fungal and animal radiations, and a new name is proposed for this well-supported clade, Nucletmycea, incorporating Nuclearia,Fonticula, and Fungi. Expand
Amoebidium parasiticum is a protozoan, not a Trichomycete.
TLDR
Maximum parsimony analysis of ichthyosporean and fungal SSU sequences, using sequences of choanoflagellates to root the 18S rDNA gene trees, resolved A. parasiticum as a strongly sup- ported sister of I. hoferi within the Ichthyophonida clade of the protozoan class Ichthyosporea. Expand
The phagotrophic origin of eukaryotes and phylogenetic classification of Protozoa.
  • T. Cavalier-smith
  • Biology, Medicine
  • International journal of systematic and evolutionary microbiology
  • 2002
TLDR
It is argued that the essentially autogenous origins of most eukaryotic cell properties (phagotrophy, endomembrane system including peroxisomes, cytoskeleton, nucleus, mitosis and sex) partially overlapped and were synergistic with the symbiogenetic origin of mitochondria from an alpha-proteobacterium. Expand
Two ascomycete classes based on fruiting-body characters and ribosomal DNA sequence.
TLDR
The phylogeny, inferred from 162 informative sites in 1,700 bp of DNA sequence data and using yeast as an outgroup, divided the fungi into two groups correlating well both with fruiting-body type and with the traditional classes Plectomycete and Pyrenomycetes, which received strong statistical support. Expand
The molecular revolution in ectomycorrhizal ecology: peeking into the black‐box
TLDR
Results from these studies have revealed that EM communities are impressively diverse and are patchily distributed at a fine scale below ground, but there is a poor correspondence between fungi that appear dominant as sporocarps vs. those that seem dominant on roots. Expand
Structure and function of fungal zoospores: ecological implications
TLDR
Current knowledge of the physiology and ecology of zoospores lags far behind knowledge of phylogenetic relationships, so some aspects of the ecology of fungal Zoospores are discussed in this review. Expand
