An observation of Dendrothele microspora

Dendrothele is a genus of fungi in the family Corticiaceae. According to a 2008 estimate, the genus has 36 widely distributed species. Dendrothele microspora was sequenced as part of the 1000 Fungal Genomes Project. The 1000 Fungal Genomes Project aims to fill in gaps in the Fungal Tree of Life by sequencing at least two reference genomes from the more than 500 recognized families of Fungi. This project additionally aims to inform research on plant-microbe interactions, microbial emission and capture of greenhouse gasses, and environmental metagenomic sequencing.
