DeCIFR for integration of taxonomic, ecological, and evolutionary biological data in mycology – Saturday, August 10 all day. Limited to 20 participants.

Drs. Ignazio Carbone, Francois Lutzoni, and Betsy Arnold, leaders

We will offer a workshop in a newly developed suite of tools called DeCIFR, an integrated, online portal for fungal systematics, ecology, evolutionary biology, and biology in general. DeCIFR offers users a curated set of robust multi-locus phylogenetic frameworks for placing known and unknown fungi at scales ranging from families to the fungal tree of life. The portal provides tools for moving seamlessly from operational taxonomic units to phylogenetic outputs, with customizable options for metadata display and easily manipulable, downloadable outputs ranging from multilocus alignments to haplotype networks.

North American Mycoflora Project Workshop – Sunday, August 11, 4:30 – 6:00 pm

Drs. D. Jean Lodge, M. Catherine Aime, Bill Sheehan, and Steve Russell, leaders

The North American Mycoflora Project is a collaborative effort between professional, paraprofessional and amateur mycologists to inventory macrofungi in North America. A round-table discussion will address: 1) progress to date, 2) a new Research Coordination Network proposal submitted to NSF, 3) how software is used to integrate records from iNaturalist and iPhoto into Mycoportal and Mycomap, and 4) plans for more outreach and Citizen Science.
