Mucoromycotina cell wall paper published

Congrats to Divya and Jason as our paper with collaborators Hugo Melida and Vincent BuloneDeciphering the uniqueness of Mucoromycotina cell walls by combining biochemical and phylogenomic approaches is now available at Environmental Microbiology. We discovered in this work that two Mucoromycotina species have novel fucose sugar composition in their cell walls which is not found in other Fungi. We also identify expansions and unique subfamilies of Chitin synthase genes.
