This website contains a few accessory tools for the accurate and precise identification of Trichoderma at the species level.
- The up to date List of Trichoderma species (see for the latest updates!) is available at https://trichokey.com/index.php/trichoderma-taxonomy-2020.
- TrichoMARK2020, the webtool helping to trim the genomic DNA sequences of the three primary DNA Barcoding markers used for molecular identification of Trichoderma (ITS, tef1, and rpb2), is available at https://trichokey.com/index.php/trichomark.
- TrichoBLAST allows a comparison of a query rpb2 sequence (pretreated in TrichoMARK!) with the reference sequences of 357 Trichoderma species. It is available at https://trichokey.com/index.php/trichoblast
The details on the proper use of these tools are described in Cai and Druzhinina, 2020.
MIST: a Multilocus Identification System for Trichoderma Dou et al., 2020 AEM is available at http://mmit.china-cctc.org/
Note: DUE TO THE HIGH NUMBER OF CLOSELY RELATED SPECIES, NO MOLECULAR IDENTIFICATION OF TRICHODERMA CAN BE ACHIEVED BY BLAST OR OTEHR AUTOMATED ANALYSES!
