Testing the phylogenetic utility of MCM 7 in the Ascomycota

  title={Testing the phylogenetic utility of MCM 7 in the Ascomycota},
  author={Huzefa A. Raja and Conrad L. Schoch and Vincent P. Hustad and Carol A. Shearer and Andrew N. Miller},
The Ascomycota are a group of filamentous fungi that occur as saprobes, pathogens, and symbionts. They are of immense industrial, medical, ecological, and economical importance. The search for new markers appropriate for molecular phylogenetic analysis of Ascomycota remains a challenging problem. In this study, we explore the phylogenetic utility of a single copy protein-coding gene, MCM7; newly recognized as useful for inferring phylogenetic relationships among the major classes of the… CONTINUE READING
