This month in what we are reading, César Marín interviews Francis M. Martin, Distinguished Research Director at INRAE, France, and Chief Scientist at the Beijing Forestry University, China, who will tell us about a large-scale genome sequencing of mycorrhizal (and saprophytic) fungi, its genomics, transcriptomics, and evolution.

His recent paper in Nature Communications entitled “Large-scale genome sequencing of mycorrhizal fungi provides insights into the early evolution of symbiotic traits” can be found here:
