Linkathon

Robin reviews recent Nature paper by Ilan Wapinski et al describing the orthogroups they built from multiple fungal genomes. I’ve been remiss in reviewing the paper myself, but they’ve created an important resource in the SYNERGY tool for orthology identification and a database of orthologs of some ascomycete fungi. I am excited there is a level of interest in the properties of gene duplication and how this may be an important aspect of adaptation and evolution. corn smut

The Cornell Mushroom blog has a nice treatment of the maize pathogen and Mexican delicacy Ustilago maydis corn smut.

Chris and Tom took some more Coprinus pictures while I was away from the lab.
