Taxonomic resolution of the nematophagous fungal isolate ARF18 via genome sequencing.

Authors: Sharma, Sandeep and Zaccaron, Alex Z and Ridenour, John B and Bradshaw, Amy and Kirkpatrick, Terry L and Cartwright, Kelly and Bluhm, Burton H

The taxonomically uncharacterized nematophagous fungus ARF18, which parasitizes cysts, juveniles, and adults of the soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera glycines), was proposed as a nematode biological control agent in 1991. A 46.3-Mb draft genome sequence of this fungus is presented, and a tentative taxonomic identification as a novel species of Brachyphoris is proposed. Copyright © 2017 Sharma et al.
