FunGeneDB: a web-based tool for Polyporales strains authentication

FunGeneDB was designed to facilitate the molecular identification of Polyporales, based on Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS). FunGeneDB combines a curated DNA database extracted from GenBank with symilarity search tool BLASTn program

Today (Last release in June 2017, new version in progress...), the database contains 6058 candidate sequences, represented 174 genus and 922 species of Polyporales fungi.
Only 4718 sequences were accepted (22 % rejected), represented 167 genus and 842 species.
There are 827 reference sequences (fully identified ITS sequences for which a voucher, strain or specimen, has been deposited in a public-access collection) of Polyporales order, representative of 165 genus and 799 species

The FunGene taxonomic classification reposed to Mycobank Database owned by the International Mycological Association
