Biases in the metabarcoding of plant pathogens using rust fungi as a model system
Plant pathogens such as rust fungi (Pucciniales) are of global economic and ecological importance. This means there is a critical need to reliably and cost‐effectively detect, identify, and monitor these fungi at large ...
The genomes of three uneven siblings: Footprints of the lifestyles of three Trichoderma species
(American Society for Microbiology, 2016-03)
The genus Trichoderma contains fungi with high relevance for humans, with applications in enzyme production for plant cell wall degradation and use in biocontrol. Here, we provide a broad, comprehensive overview of the ...
Plant mutualisms with rhizosphere microbiota in introduced versus native ranges
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd on behalf of British Ecological Society, 2016-09)
© 2016 The Authors. Journal of Ecology published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd on behalf of British Ecological Society. The performance of introduced plants can be limited by the availability of soil mutualists outside their ...
Genome-scale investigation of phenotypically distinct but nearly clonal Trichoderma strains
Biological control agents (BCA) are beneficial organisms that are applied to protect plants from pests. Many fungi of the genus Trichoderma are successful BCAs but the underlying mechanisms are not yet fully understood. ...
Detection of the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana in the rhizosphere of wound-stressed Zea mays plants
(Frontiers Media, 2018-06-11)
Entomopathogenic fungi from the genus Beauveria (Vuillemin) play an important role in controlling insect populations and have been increasingly utilized for the biological control of insect pests. Various studies have ...
