Concrete is susceptible to cracking owing to drying shrinkage, freeze-thaw cycles, delayed ettringite formation, reinforcement corrosion, creep and fatigue, etc. Continuous inspection and maintenance of concrete infrastructure require onerous labor and high costs. If the damaging cracks can heal by themselves without any human interference or intervention, that could be of great attraction. In this study, a novel self-healing approach is investigated, in which fungi are applied to heal cracks in...

ABSTRACTTwo new species of Cadophora are described based on multigene phylogenetic analyses and phenotypic and ecological characters. The species delimitation was based on concordance of gene genealogies. The cultures of the Cadophora species were isolated from the roots of long-beaked sedge and white spruce from a subalpine forest in western Canada; however, they probably have a broader distribution because their internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences have high similarity with a number of ...

The rice blast fungus Pyricularia oryzae (syn. Magnaporthe oryzae, Magnaporthe grisea), a member of the order Magnaporthales in the class Sordariomycetes, is an important plant pathogen and a model species for studying pathogen infection and plant-fungal interaction. In this study, we generated genome sequence data from five additional Magnaporthales fungi including non-pathogenic species, and performed comparative genome analysis of a total of 13 fungal species in the class Sordariomycetes to u...

ABSTRACTThe end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st will be remembered as the golden age of molecular systematics of Fungi. The development of the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), automated sequencing, and explicit algorithms for inferring phylogenetic trees transformed fungal systematics into a hypothesis-testing discipline that would go on to serve as the foundation for comparative and evolutionary genomics. Many mycologists participated in this modernization of mycology and perh...

Abstract Almost all plants in nature harbour fungi in their roots but the knowledge on distribution and the underlying principles of assemblage is still poorly developed for the root-associated fungi. In this study we analysed the root endophytic fungal communities associated with switchgrass, rosette grass, and pitch pine in the acidic, oligotrophic pine barrens ecosystem. A total of 434 fungal isolates were obtained from 600 root segments of 60 plant samples. DNA barcoding and morphological an...
