- ... 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 ...

- ... Survival of ambrosia beetles relies on obligate nutritional relationships with fungal symbionts that are cultivated in tunnels excavated in the sapwood of their host trees. The dynamics of fungal associates, along with the developmental biology, and gallery construction of the ambrosia beetle Xyleborus bispinatus were elaborated. One generation of this ambrosia beetle was reared in an artificial m ...
