- ... High-throughput sequencing of DNA barcodes, such as the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of the 16s rRNA sequence, has expanded the ability of researchers to investigate the endophytic fungal communities of living plants. With a large and growing database of complete fungal genomes, it may be possible to utilize portions of fungal symbiont genomes outside conventional marker sequences for communi ...
