    • 3. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Fungi are diverse and poorly-known Most are cryptic over the majority of their life cycle Many are economically important: - Pathogens - Mutualists - Foods, medicines, industrial products
    • 4. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Unknowns: • Diversity of life cycle stages (e.g., endophyte to pathogen transitions) • Host ranges • Geographic ranges / biogeography • Community ecology
    • 5. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Unknowns: • Diversity of life cycle stages (e.g., endophyte to pathogen transitions) • Host ranges • Geographic ranges / biogeography • Community ecologyAll of these characters are relevant to understanding ecologyand evolution of fungi, and tracking the spread of fungalspecies.
    • 6. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Unknowns: • Diversity of life cycle stages (e.g., endophyte to pathogen transitions) • Host ranges • Geographic ranges / biogeography • Community ecologyDNA Barcoding is a useful and important tool for identifying fungi(rapid • able to detect cryptic fungi) and thereby understandingthese factors…
    • 7. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Unknowns: • Diversity of life cycle stages (e.g., endophyte to pathogen transitions) • Host ranges • Geographic ranges / biogeography • Community ecology… However, utility of this tool is dependent upon existence ofcomprehensive sequence databases and methods for confidentlyassigning taxonomic identities via sequence comparisons.
    • 8. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Large-scale barcoding projects can aid in closing the sequencing gap. Types of foci: - Institutional - Geographic - Ecological
    • 9. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS 2 recent projects: • Barcoding the Venice Museum of Natural History Fungal Collection (Institutional) • The Moorea Biocode Project (Geographic ) Issues/Questions: • What types of target are most effective? • What types of sampling are most effective? • What are the implications for barcoding strategy?
    • 10. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS BARCODING THE VENICE FUNGAL COLLECTION Institutional strategy – barcode large number of samples from a single herbariumStrengths:• Links to Italy’s largest amateur mycological society (Associazione Micologica Bresadola)• Collaboration with taxonomic experts• Taxonomic diversity of collections• Collections relatively recent• Habitat diversity (Alps  plains  Apennines  Mediterranean)
    • 11. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONSSamplingLocalities
    • 12. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Sampling : • Focus on breadth • Attempt to obtain Barcode for every macrofungal species in the collection (~ 6000) • Replication for well-represented species • Good coverage for Agaricales; additional coverage within Basidiomycota & Ascomycota
    • 13. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Results ~31K collections ~5K collections sampled 2763 specimens PCR positive [Age; taxon] 1400 specimens Sequence positive [Sequencing failure; contamination; paralogy]: • 1100 double-stranded • ~300 single-stranded

    • 16. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Classification potential of ITS barcodes: • Can ITS barcodes predict membership in genera and families based on overall similarity? • Distance / UPGMA approach based on ITS1 + ITS2 distance matrices • Functionalities available in BioloMICS software (www.bio-aware.com)
    • 17. UPGMA treeshowing sequenceassignment togenera and families;genus Cortinarius(familyCortinariaceae)shown
    • 18. Cluster-based(NMDS)assignments togenera
    • 19. Cluster-based(NMDS)assignments tofamilies
    • 20. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Classification potential of ITS barcodes: • May reveal errors in classification; e.g., segregate genera in Coprinoid fungi
    • 21. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Is there a ‘barcoding gap’? • Compared number of nucleotide differences within and between identified taxa • Assessed 2 types of potential error: - False negative (same ITS for different species) - False positive (>1 ITS for one species)

    • 26. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS When differentiation fails (same ITS sequence for species identified as different): • 60 pairs with 0 bp difference but not belonging to the same species: - 59 congeners (synonyms, species complexes or ‘minor’ misidentifications) - 1 epigeous - sequestrate confamilial pair (Leucoagaricus medioflavoides + Endoptychum agaricoides)
    • 27. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS When differentiation fails (same ITS sequence for species identified as different): • 77 pairs with 1 bp difference but not belonging to the same species: - 73 congeners - 2 ‘major’ misidentifications or mixed samples (Boletus vs. Inocybe; Sarcosphaera vs. Psathyrella) - 1 ‘moderate’ misidentification (Pholiotina vs. Galerina)
    • 28. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Examination of ITS1 and ITS2 as “mini-barcodes” • Improved sequencing success rate: ITS1 amplified using primers ITS1F + ITS2 for 30 randomly-selected samples previously negative for full- length PCR amplifications (using ITS1F + ITS4) from 3 large genera: GENUS PCR-POSITIVE SEQUENCE - Cortinarius 30/30 (100%) 24/30 (80%) - Russula 30/30 (100%) 27/30 (90%) - Mycena 27/30 (90%) 4/30 (13%)

    • 30. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Conclusions, Venice Herbarium Project: • Similarity-based taxonomic assignment using ITS sequences works reasonably well at genus and family levels (but not flawless) • At species level, incorrect assignments (assessed for morphospecies) in both “false negative” and “false positive” directions. • A 1-2% divergence cutoff eliminates most “false positives” (>1 ITS sequence per morphospecies); however, “false negatives” (>1 taxon per ITS sequence occur even at 0-1 nucleotide difference.
    • 31. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Conclusions, Venice Herbarium Project (continued): • “Mini-barcodes” improve success rates and retain ability to classify sequences; ITS1 outperformed ITS2 for the taxa examined
    • 32. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Conclusions , Venice Herbarium Project (continued): • Value of herbaria in facilitating a large collection approach to barcoding • Value to herbaria (increase ‘relevance,’ streamline use of collections)
    • 33. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS THE MOOREA BIOCODE PROJECT • Geographic/ecological strategy: barcoding an entire biome

    • 35. Goal: to develop a fully-characterized tropical island modelecosystem through intensive bioticsurveys and generation of DNAbarcode libraries
    • 36. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS THE MOOREA BIOCODE PROJECT • South Pacific islands an undersampled region for fungi • Moore Foundation-funded, multi-taxon ATBI. • Approach: threefold – Voucher-based collection of macromycetes Environmental DNA sampling Culture-based sampling
    • 37. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Sampling Approach:• Field collection• Voucher information, photos, and DNA sequence linked together and made public• Collaboration with BioMatters, Inc.– Geneious Moorea Biocode workbench / data pipeline
    • 38. Macrofungal richness
    • 39. 62 percent of sequences exhibit less than 97% best match62% of sequences exhibit < 97% identity to sequences to in Genbank; 23% exhibit best BLAST matchcurrently in GenBank. This project will therefore make animportant contribution sequence (cultured or uncultured) environmental to GenBank taxon coverage. 97%
    • 40. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS • 62 percent of sequences exhibit less than 97% best match in Genbank: Incomplete database? Potential radiations? Insular rapid evolution? • 23% exhibit best BLAST match to environmental sequence (cultured or uncultured) • Voucher-supported sequences will enhance ecological and biodiversity discovery; underscores importance of collections-based research
    • 41. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS For sequences with 98% or greater match: • Suggests recent arrival or slow evolution • If to named material: sequencing facilitates ID of Moorea taxa • If to environmental sequences: Voucher now exists corresponding to the environmental sequence
    • 42. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS Moorea Biocode Project: Contributions include: • Augmenting geographical and taxonomic coverage in GenBank • Providing vouchers that match environmental sequences • Providing material for biogeographic studies
    • 43. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS CONCLUSIONS: Large-scale barcoding approaches based on institutional collections and ecosystems contribute to the study of fungal biodiversity, ecology, biogeography, and epidemiology. Institutional targeting: • Adds barcodes for well vouchered and identified material • Adds value to herbarium collections • Allows assessment of barcode “behavior” (laboratory approaches, barcoding gaps, need for multilocus barcodes, etc.) for different taxonomic groups
    • 44. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS CONCLUSIONS, continued: Ecosystem targeting: • Increases representation of poorly-sampled biomes • Aids biogeographic studies • Barcoding speeds time to identification, facilitating biodiversity surveys Both Approaches: • Exhibit advantages over focusing on specific taxonomic groups of expertise or interest • Offer opportunities for collaboration with taxonomic specialists and amateur enthusiasts
    • 45. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS IMPLICATIONS OF LARGE-SCALE STUDIES FOR DNA BARCODING OF FUNGI: 1. Utility of ITS as a barcode locus: • Similarity-based searches are often sufficient for assignment to genera and families • Use as a species-specific marker problematic due to false negatives and positives • A firm “barcoding gap” is lacking, though some level of success is met using 1-2 bp differences; A 98% or 97% similarity threshold appears to be too low; most species-level similarity is on the order of 99% or higher
    • 46. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS IMPLICATIONS OF LARGE-SCALE STUDIES FOR DNA BARCODING OF FUNGI: 2. “Environmental species”: • Formal (or semi-formal) recognition of entities known only from environmental DNA sequences; subject of a formal discussion session at 2011 MSA annual meeting • Appealing as a means to improve comparison across studies and progress from descriptive or comparative community studies (OTU-based) to a more functional understanding of communities and ecosystems
    • 47. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS IMPLICATIONS OF LARGE-SCALE STUDIES FOR DNA BARCODING OF FUNGI: 2. “Environmental species” (continued): • Our results suggest that a simple identity- or similarity-based approach may be useful for group placement (genera or families), but species-level circumscription is unlikely.
    • 48. INTRODUCTION VENICE HERBARIUM MOOREA BIOCODE CONCLUSIONS IMPLICATIONS OF LARGE-SCALE STUDIES FOR DNA BARCODING OF FUNGI: 3. Multilocus barcodes: • Already well-recognized that ITS is not a species- level barcode for some groups of Ascomycota • Our results strongly suggest that a similar issue exists for Agaricales (Basidiomycota) as well.
