Anaerobic Fungal ITS1 Database: A database for the assignment of anaerobic fungal ITS1 next-generation sequence reads (compatible with Mothur and QIIME) as described in the paper by Koetschan et al (2014)  is freely accessible from this website (please just cite this paper when using it: Koetschan et al (2014) Internal Transcribed Spacer 1 Secondary Structure Analysis Reveals a Common Core throughout the Anaerobic Fungi (Neocallimastigomycota). PLOS One 9 (3), e91928. DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0091928 ). The current release of the database (which now includes Pecoramyces) is version 3.3 (September 2017) and the files can be downloaded here: database v3.3 & taxonomy v3.3.

Anaerobic Fungal ITS1 Secondary Structure Prediction: Access to the tool as described in the paper by Koetschan et al (2014) Internal Transcribed Spacer 1 Secondary Structure Analysis Reveals a Common Core throughout the Anaerobic Fungi (Neocallimastigomycota). PLOS One. DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0091928

Rumen Microbial Genomics Network: “The RMG Network is a global collaborative network of researchers with a common set of principles and guidelines in rumen microbial genomics to underpin the development of CH4 mitigation and rumen adaptation technologies. The Network’s efforts are focused on generating a shared comprehensive data resource that will enable investigators to characterize the relationship between the composition of the rumen microbiome (or of parts of the rumen microbiome) and the efficient bioconversion of fibrous feedstuffs, leading to a more environmentally acceptable production of nutritious foods in all parts of the world.”

Hungate 1000 Project: The Hungate 1000 project aims to produce a reference set of rumen microbial genome sequences by sequencing the genomes of available cultivated rumen bacteria and methanogenic archaea, together with representative cultures of rumen anaerobic fungi and ciliate protozoa.

Global Rumen Census Project: This project aims to survey the diversity of microbes present in rumen samples obtained from a range of locations and farming situations.

1000 Fungal Genomes Project: This is project aims to sequence 1000 genomes representative of the whole fungal kingdom. On the project website you can also find DNA extraction protocols etc associated with the project. You can still nominate fungi for genome sequencing, although there are several genome/transcriptome resources for anaerobic fungi already listed.
