The Fungal Genomics and Evolution specialty section of Frontiers in Fungal Biology publishes high-quality fundamental and applied research across all aspects related to fungal genomes, their function, and their evolution. It is a growing branch of fungal biology that studies the diversity, function, and evolution of fungi using genomics and evolutionary approaches.
This interdisciplinary section solicits articles describing significant advances in areas including, but not limited to:
· Comparative genomics
· Genome analysis
· Metagenomics and mycobiome studies
· Comparative transcriptomics
· Genome regulation and epigenetics
· Bioinformatics tools, servers and databases for genome analysis
· Experimental tools for genomic analysis or manipulation l
· Population genomics
· Ecological genomics
· Functional genomics
· Evolutionary genomics
All studies must contribute to novel insights into fungal biology from a genomics perspective with genomics being understood in its broadest sense (i.e. including metagenomics, functional genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, etc).We welcome studies focused on any lineage of the broad diversity of fungi, and in any of the possible applications of genomics to understand fungal biology, including diversity, evolution, ecology, pathogenesis, symbiosis, and other interactions. Genome reports merely describing an assembly and its annotation do not generally fall within the scope of this section. Nevertheless, we welcome descriptions of new genomes and datasets if they constitute unique resources of broad interests, and/or are accompanied with analysis producing important novel insights.
