Hey! I want to ask you if you’ll be linking with another mycologist at a university to insure that careful, authentic DNA sequencing is performed for the full ITS barcode and other regions(?). Also, chemotaxonomic studies (chemosystematics) would be highly valuable and someone should be nudged for the work.
