Variation within the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and the intergenic spacer (IGS) of the ribosomal RNA gene of isolates representing seven European species of Armillaria was examined by PCR, coupled with RFLP analysis and partial sequencing of the ITS region. 
Identification protocol for six Armillaria species from northeastern North America
DNA sequences (~3 kb long) extending from the intergenic spacer 1 (IGS1) region to the 18S gene were obtained for isolates of Armillaria ostoyae, Armillaria calvescens, Armillaria gallica, and Armi...
Delineation of the European Armillaria species based on the sequences of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of ribosomal DNA
TLDR
The results are consistent with, and discussed in regard to, the relationships estimated previously by pairing tests, morphological and physiological comparisons, as well as by restriction fragment length polymorphism of the rDNA. Expand
Sequence variation in the rDNA ITS of Australian Armillaria species and intra-specific variation in A. luteobubalina
TLDR
In contrast to northern hemisphere species, Australia’s Armillaria species have high variation in the rDNA Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) region, and isolates of five different Australian species, including A. luteobubalina, had distinct ITS sequences and PCR-RFLP profiles. Expand
Identification of Portuguese Armillaria Isolates by Classic Mating-Tests and RFLP-PCR Analysis of the ITS1 Region of Ribosomal DNA
TLDR
The ITS1 region showed to be a reliable molecular marker for A. mellea identification by ITS1 analysis, in particular when HinfI restriction analysis is applied, since two fragments with 245 bp and 125 bp have been obtained for this most aggressive species. Expand
Sequence-based identification of Japanese Armillaria species using the elongation factor-1 alpha gene
TLDR
Among the techniques examined in this study, analyzing the EF-1 alpha sequence was found to be the most suitable method for identifying different species of Japanese Armillaria. Expand
The rapid identification of European Armillaria species from soil samples by nested PCR.
TLDR
New specific primers AR1 and AR2 were successfully used for the amplification of a specific part of internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of rDNA of Armillaria isolated from soil samples, enabling the identification ofArmillaria species within one day directly from soil sample without the need for previous isolation and cultivation of mycelium of Armillsaria.

Taxonomy of Ganoderma lucidum from Korea Based on rDNA and Partial β-Tubulin Gene Sequence Analysis
TLDR
It is revealed that Korean Ganoderma lucidum strains belong in a single group along with a G. lucidum strain from Bangladesh, and those of the partial β-tubulin gene sequence were 419 bp. Expand
Evaluation of amplified ribosomal DNA restriction analysis as a method for the identification of Botryosphaeria species.
TLDR
The method described in this paper provides a simple and rapid procedure for the differentiation and identification of Botryosphaeria isolates at the species level. Expand
Nucleotide Divergence Analysis of IGS Region in Fusarium oxysporum and its formae speciales Based on the Sequence
TLDR
The intergenic spacer (IGS) sequence of Fusarium oxysporum have been reported to provide reliable information concerning intraspecific variation and phylogeny of fungal species and sequence analysis showed that transitions were more frequent than transversions. Expand
Sequence analysis of ITS ribosomal DNA in five Phaeoacremonium species and development of a PCR-based assay for the detection of P. chlamydosporum and P. aleophilum in grapevine tissue
TLDR
Two main groups were clearly distinguishable, one formed by P. chlamydosporum and P. aleophilum in artificially inoculated grapevine plants, and no length-polymorphism could be detected within species, but there were quite strong differences between species. Expand
