What is it about?

We developed a strategy to classify fungi, based on the analysis of ITS (internal transcribed spacer of the ribosomal region) sequences that would enable faster classification of data from samples analyzed using high throughput sequencing.

Why is it important?

A faster and more efficient classification of fungal sequences would be very helpful for work that involves analysis of microbial populations and exploration of fungi in different ecosystems.
