Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Welcome to the Morchella MLST database. This dedicated database was set up at the CBS-KNAW Biodiversity Center by Vincent Robert in February 2012, using BioloMICS software (Robert et al., 2011), to facilitate DNA sequence-based identifications of Morchella species via the Internet. The current database is a natural extension of several multilocus molecular phylogenetic studies directed at assessing the genetic diversity and evolutionary relationships of true morels in Turkey and other regions of Europe (Taskin et al., 2010, 2012), the P. R. China (Du et al., in review FGB), and worldwide (O’Donnell et al., 2011). To familiarize interested readers with the findings and methods employed in these investigations, PDFs of these studies are available for downloading from this site (see References Cited).
