    Hi All,

    For those of you with an interest in participating in our ongoing sequencing project I developed and posted the Sequncing Protocol under the Latest Scientific News section of the Scientific Committee page.

    I think AMS should help the North American Mycoflora Project with its goal to voucher and sequence specimens as many clubs are now doing. To that end I suggested to Chris in a recent email that we concentrate our limited resources on genera that have been the subject of recently published studies so there are good sequences on GenBank with which to compare and current interest on the part of authors who are more willing to help us analyze our findings where necessary.  The following genera have been the subject of recent studies:  Morchella, Pluteus, Auricularia, Suillus, Agaricus, Cantharellus, Leccinum and Fomitopsis.

    Thanks for the offer but it looks like the Gilbertson Herbarium will be doing the sequencing for us.

    Tartu State University in Estonia would be able to do the dna testing for mushrooms if it is not! inteded for commersial use but for scientific study, they would love to collaborate on research and publication of the paper/ research.University would charge 5.- to 8.- euros per test per mushroom, + the shipping cost

    If interested, you can contact me for further info

    The NAU lab didn't work out as they are set up for bat DNA analysis and, according to the director, it would cost about $5000 to set it up for mushroom DNA sequencing.  So, we are back to using the lab in Spain that I used late last year.  I mailed off 8 samples today (which Mike and I are prepared to pay for if the club can't):  MO obs:  238137, 238647,239180,239198,239200, 239805, 239806, and 239807.

    Evidently the club does have money for some sequencing so we are pursuing it with a new DNA lab that just opened at NAU.

    Hi all, Mike Dechter and I were discussing the burn morel yesterday on the foray.  He thinks the morels we found in the seeps may be a different species.  The Kuo etal paper of 2012 mentions seeps as a favored habitat of M. eximia (=M.septimelata).  It would be interesting to get a DNA analysis of one of these.  Does the AMS have any money for this kind of thing?  Also, the Az Cypress associate would be a good candidate to see if it is M. rufobrunnea.
