About this Research Topic
With the appearance of more morphological and molecular evidence of fungal species, many previously incorrectly identified taxonomies of species can be corrected. In particular, multi-gene phylogeny can obtain more stable phylogenetic relationships than that of a single gene. On the other hand, many invisible novel species previously unidentified by morphological studies are increasingly being discovered through molecular evidence. Therefore, research on fungal diversity based on morphological and multi-gene phylogenetic evidence is of great significance. In this Research Topic, we would like to discover more novel species of Ascomycetes and Basidiomycetes, focusing on their taxonomy and phylogeny, as well as the genetic and molecular characterization of Ascomycetes and Basidiomycetes fungi and their interaction with the host species.
In this Research Topic, we encourage the submission of manuscripts on the fungal diversity of Ascomycetes and Basidiomycetes, and provide valuable insight to the scientific community, ranging from the micro to macro scale. Original Research and Reviews on the following subjects are encouraged, but not limited to:
- Phylogenetic and taxonomic studies of fungal diversity of Ascomycetes as well as Basidiomycetes
- Genetic and molecular characterization of Ascomycetes and Basidiomycetes as fungal pathogens and their interaction with host species
- Genetic and molecular characterization of endophytes fungal species and their interaction with host species
- Genomic and metagenomic studies of Ascomycetes and Basidiomycetes species
