Lost genes make fungi dependent on trees

Anders Tunlid is looking at mycorrhiza in the lab. A new research study has shed light on the underground interaction between tree roots and fungi. In order to understand how this important symbiosis came about, an international team of researchers have sequenced the genomes of different fungi that live underground. The study shows that in the course of evolution, the symbiotic fungi have lost many genes present in their free-living ancestors, and thus become dependent on the trees.
