Article
Full-text available
Background Recent technological developments have made genome sequencing and assembly highly accessible and widely used. However, the presence in sequenced organisms of certain genomic features such as high heterozygosity, polyploidy, aneuploidy, heterokaryosis, or extreme compositional biases can challenge current standard assembly procedures and...

Recent technological developments have made genome sequencing and assembly accessible to many groups. However, the presence in sequenced organisms of certain genomic features such as high heterozygosity, polyploidy, aneuploidy, or heterokaryosis can challenge current standard assembly procedures and result in highly fragmented assemblies. Hence, we...
Article
Full-text available
Background The Mediterranean mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis is an ecologically and economically relevant edible marine bivalve, highly invasive and resilient to biotic and abiotic stressors causing recurrent massive mortalities in other bivalves. Although these traits have been recently linked with the maintenance of a high genetic variation with...
Article
Full-text available
The question of how phenotypic and genomic complexity are inter‐related and how they are shaped through evolution is a central question in biology that historically has been approached from the perspective of animals and plants. In recent years, however, fungi have emerged as a promising alternative system to address such questions. Key to their ec...
Article
Full-text available
The fungal kingdom comprises a hyperdiverse clade of heterotrophic eukaryotes characterized by the presence of a chitinous cell wall, the loss of phagotrophic capabilities and cell organizations that range from completely unicellular monopolar organisms to highly complex syncitial filaments that may form macroscopic structures. Fungi emerged as a ‘...

Full-text available
Mussels are ecologically and economically relevant edible marine bivalves, highly invasive and resilient to biotic and abiotic stressors causing recurrent massive mortalities in other species. Here we show that the Mediterranean mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis has a complex pan-genomic architecture, which includes a core set of 45,000 genes shared...
Article
Full-text available
The secretion of cell wall‐degrading enzymes is one of the mechanisms used by necrotrophic fungi to colonise host tissues. However, information about virulence factors of Monilinia spp., the causal agents of brown rot in stone fruit, is scarce. Plant cell walls have three main components that are broken down by fungal enzymes: cellulose, hemicellul...
Article
Full-text available
Fungi are a highly diverse group of heterotrophic eukaryotes characterized by the absence of phagotrophy and the presence of a chitinous cell wall. While unicellular fungi are far from rare, part of the evolutionary success of the group resides in their ability to grow indefinitely as a cylindrical multinucleated cell (hypha). Armed with these morp...
Article
Full-text available
Monilinia laxa (phylum Ascomycota ) is a plant pathogen responsible for the brown rot blossom blight disease in stone fruit trees of the Rosaceae family, such as apricots. We report here the genome sequence of strain 8L of this species, which was assembled into 618 scaffolds, having a total size of 40.799 Mb and encoding 9,567 unique protein-coding...
Article
Full-text available
Analysis of the growing number of available fully-sequenced genomes has shown that Horizontal Gene Transfer (HGT) in eukaryotes is more common than previously thought. It has been proposed that genes with certain functions may be more prone to HGT than others, but we still have a very poor understanding of the selective forces driving eukaryotic HG...
Data
Nucleotide sequences of the Asp_Glu Racemase in the 32 C. glabrata strains analyzed (FASTA format).
Data
Growth of C. glabrata wild types on solid media with d- and l-amino acids. The sequenced wild type strain ATCC2001 and the clinical isolate BAK618 grow on glucose-containing medium with l-alanine or l-aspartate as nitrogen source, but not with their d-enantiomers. In comparison, the C. albicans wild type SC5314 containing d-amino acid oxidases can...
Data
Growth of C. glabrata wild type and racemase mutant strains in liquid cultures. The C. glabrata wild type ATCC2001 and the clinical isolate BAK618 grow in liquid minimal media (CMM or YCB), as long as an l-amino acid (alanine or aspartate, green symbols) serves as nitrogen source. d-alanine or d-aspartate (red symbols) do not support growth of any...
Data
List of plant-associated fungi and oomycota. The table indicates if the species is considered plant-associated (Y) or not (N). Classification into one lifestyle or the other is based on wikipedia articles of the given species or bibliographical evidence. In the second case, citation is provided.
Data
List of detected HGT events. Events marked in red were rejected after manual inspection either because of high suspicion of contamination or due to phylogenetic incongruences with the result of a BLAST search against Uniprot database.
Article
Full-text available
Saccharomycotina comprises a diverse group of yeasts that includes numerous species of industrial or clinical relevance. Opportunistic pathogens within this clade are often assigned to the genus Candida but belong to phylogenetically distant lineages which also comprise non-pathogenic species. This indicates that the ability to infect humans has ev...
Article
Full-text available
Pochonia chlamydosporia (Pc), a nematophagous fungus and root endophyte, uses appressoria and extracellular enzymes, principally proteases, to infect the eggs of plant parasitic nematodes (PPN). Unlike other fungi, Pc is resistant to chitosan, a deacetylated form of chitin, used in agriculture as a biopesticide to control plant pathogens. In the pr...
Article
Full-text available
The fungal parasite of nematode eggs Pochonia chlamydosporia is also a root endophyte known to promote growth of some plants. In this study, we analysed the effect of nine P. chlamydosporia isolates from worldwide origin on tomato growth. Experiments were performed at different scales (Petri dish, growth chamber and greenhouse conditions) and devel...
