[…] entification and recently formalized as universal DNA barcode markers for fungi (; ), several projects have been conducted to develop fungal databases, such as ITSDB or UNITE for QIIME released () or ISHAM ITS Database. The later ITS database was recently generated from quality controlled ITS sequences, which represent the actual sequence variation found in each species. Given that fungi represent […]
