New fungus strikes the ash at its core

New fungus strikes the ash at its core | MycoWorld | Scoop.it
Researchers describe the species of fungus responsible for the ash dieback recently observed in Switzerland as a "familiar stranger." However, researchers still don't know why a harmless leaf colonizer could turn into an aggressive pathogen.

Twenty-first century mycology: a diverse, collaborative, and highly relevant science - Kennedy - 2014 - New Phytologist - Wiley Online Library | MycoWorld | Scoop.it

In June 2014, over 250 researchers from a variety of national and international locations attended the annual meeting of the Mycological Society of America (MSA), which was held on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI, USA. Talks, posters, and symposia covered an impressive breadth of fungal biology organized around four main research themes: cell biology/physiology, ecology/pathology, genetics/molecular biology, and systematics. The taxonomic diversity of the fungal kingdom was highlighted throughout the meeting, with presentations covering all of the major fungal lineages. While the core of the talks was on the fungi themselves, many emphasized interactions with other species, including a wide range of plants, animals, and bacteria. It was also clear that mycologists have adopted all the latest ‘–omics’ and next generation sequencing methodologies to ask cutting-edge questions about topics such as infectious disease, climate change, and bioremediation. At the same time, in the era where almost anyone can generate a fungal sequence, strong organism-based knowledge has become even more important (see in this issue of New Phytologist, Herr et al., pp. 27–31). Fortunately, this was on consistent display throughout the meeting and the MSA has long been a welcoming community to researchers from all disciplinary backgrounds. Below we summarize a handful of the many meeting highlights.

Chaga, the Mushroom of Immortality. The very first time I heard of this mushroom and the title of this article captured my attention as sentence of "the mushroom of immortality". From the picture, exactly like the article mention, it does not look like any other common mushroom and it just look like woods or charcoal. It is a very impressive mushroom as the benefits that brings to human and medical properties. However, it could only edible if we obtain it from the birch trees.
