Genomes of several opportunists with fascinating natural ecologies have recently become available, and interpretation of this material and phylogenomic comparison has become overdue.
Given the rapid accumulation of a vast amount of biodiversity data on various groups of yeasts, the necessity to implement the One Fungus = One Name principle, and the availability of improved multigene phylogenies makes a concerted action on an update of yeast taxonomy urgent
The workshop will focus on major groups of ascomycetes, and strive to integrate multigene DNA and genome data to facilitate informed decisions on generic limits, higher order phylogeny and classification, and the merging of asexual and sexual generic names under the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi and plants.
New edition of popular fungal biodiversity calendar: The next calendar is scheduled for April 2015, and will be handed out at the Second International Workshop on Ascomycete Systematics (22-24 April) in Amsterdam.
A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Associate Professor Åke Olson on the Effects of genetic distance on epistasis and fitness in the root-rot pathogen Heterobasidion parviporum.
