DNA Samples from Purdue, Kew Fungi Collections Provide Key to Mushroom 'Tree of Life'

Yesterday − Purdue University
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Genetic material from fungi collections at Purdue University and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, helped a team of researchers resolve the mushroom "tree of life," a map of the relationships between key mushroom species and their evolutionary history that scientists have struggled to piece together for more than 200 years. …
