Genome scale phylogeny and increased taxon sampling resolve the major relationships within class Leotiomycetes.

Leotiomycetes is a diverse class of fungi in Ascomycota. They comprise plant and animal pathogens, endophytes, saprobes, mycorrhizae, Traditionally used phylogenetic markers have yielded conflicting hypotheses about the relationships in this class and frequently resolve deep branches with low bootstrap support. We sought to use genome-scale phylogenetic data along with increased sampling of previously unsampled orders to resolve relationships within the class. Our analyses presented here provide the first support for ordinal-level relationships, and we explore where conflict exists within the tree that is leading to the conflict seen in single or few gene analyses.
