  • Online databases for taxonomy and identification of Pathogenic Fungi and proposal for a cloud-based dynamic data network platform
    Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 2017
    Co-Authors: Peralam Yegneswaran Prakash, Laszlo Irinyi, C. Halliday, Sharon Chen, Vincent Robert, Wieland Meyer

    Abstract:

    The increase in public online databases dedicated to fungal identification is noteworthy. This can be attributed to improved access to molecular approaches to characterize Fungi, as well as to delineate species within specific fungal groups in the last 2 decades, leading to an ever-increasing complexity of taxonomic assortments and nomenclatural reassignments. Thus, well-curated fungal databases with substantial accurate sequence data play a pivotal role for further research and diagnostics in the field of mycology. This minireview aims to provide an overview of currently available online databases for the taxonomy and identification of human and AnimalPathogenic Fungi and calls for the establishment of a cloud-based dynamic data network platform.

  • DNA barcoding of Fungi causing infections in humans and Animals
    Fungal Biology, 2015
    Co-Authors: Laszlo Irinyi, Michaela Lackner, G. Sybren De Hoog, Wieland Meyer

    Abstract:

    Correct species identification is becoming increasingly important in clinical diagnostics. Till now, many mycological laboratories rely on conventional phenotypic identification. But this is slow and strongly operator-dependent. Therefore, to improve the quality of pathogen identification, rapid, reliable, and objective identification methods are essential. One of the most encouraging approaches is molecular barcoding using the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of the rDNA, which is rapid, easily achievable, accurate, and applicable directly from clinical specimens. It relies on the comparison of a single ITS sequence with a curated reference database. The International Society for Human and Animal Mycology (ISHAM) working group for DNA barcoding has recently established such a database, focusing on the majority of human and Animal Pathogenic Fungi (ISHAM-ITS, freely accessible at http://www.isham.org/ or directly from http://its.mycologylab.org). For some Fungi the use of secondary barcodes may be necessary.
