Zygo genomes update Feb-June 2016

A number of genomes have been completed recently and made public as part of our collaboration with Joint Genome Institute (JGI). These data are unpublished and are being included in phylogenomic analyses by the ZyGoLife research consortium. We are particularly interested in resolving relationships among the zygomycete fungi and using a phylogenetic framework to test hypotheses of the evolution of fungi as they transitioned onto land and adopted nutritional modes reliant on plants and plant-based ecosystems

New releases since our last post include:

Mortierellomycotina:

Mucoromycotina:
