This month's Genome Watch focuses on the genome sequences of several fungal species with distinct and varied lifestyles. These range from a saprophytic existence in dung to symbiotic mycorrhizal associations with plant roots to parasitism of grain. Analyses of the genome sequences reveal how evolution has played a crucial part in shaping the genetic make-up of these fungi to enable them to thrive within their microenvironments.
