CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Where to now?

This chapter provides information on the status quo of molecular assessment of prokaryotes, fungi and yeast. The recent developments in sequencing approaches to assess the diversity of cultured and not-as-yet-cultured organisms and metagenomes, together with the most widely applied algorithms for...

Cover for Are species concepts outdated for fungi? Intraspecific variation in plant-pathogenic fungi illustrates the need for subspecific categorization.

Precise naming of a species is very important for phytopathogenic fungi because names may carry key information for the management of the fungal diseases. Naming fungal species based on morphological traits or biological properties is outdated and unreliable. This chapter provides the...

Cover for Genomic sequences for fungi.

This chapter aims to give an overview of the basic knowledge, understanding and perspectives in fungal genomics. It is likely that fungal genome sequencing will soon become simpler and cheaper, and allow most research laboratories to undertake in-house, whole genome sequencing on a regular basis,...

Cover for MALDI-TOF MS and its requirements for fungal identification.

Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) is now used as a routine technique for the fast and reliable identification of fungi at the species level and, currently, it represents an important phenotypic methodology based on proteomic profiles. The...

Cover for MALDI-TOF MS and currently related proteomic technologies in reconciling bacterial systematics.

This book chapter presents an overview and discussion of the use of MALDI-TOF MS for fungal identification. The major known limitations of the technique for fungal taxonomy, and how to overcome these, are also discussed. Moreover, this should guarantee that spectra deposited in such MALDI-TOF MS...

Cover for Data resources: role and services of culture collections.

Microbial culture collections (CC) support taxonomy through the provision and preservation of microorganisms, underpinning the integrity of research. However, cultures are essentially worthless without associated data. Details of isolation (geographical location, date of collection, date of...

Cover for Can older fungal sequence data be useful?

This chapter focuses primarily on the use and evaluation of fungal nucleotide sequences to obtain information that can be used to elucidate relationships between strains and specimens. The importance of the reexamination and evaluation of older material in order to identify new species derived from ...

Cover for Preserving the reference strains.

It is critical that storage of the living reference strains, on which the names and properties are based and the DNA sequenced to assign a name (the reference genetic resources), are preserved optimally to retain stability. The fact that less than 1% of microbial diversity can be grown sets...
