  1. The number of CAZymes for plant polysaccharide degradation identified in UM 1400 and UM 1020 genomes was compared with those in the selected ascomycetous fungi of different lifestyles (summarized from Additional file 1: Table S5). Note that the CAZyme referred here indicates functional modules or domains but not genes. Data obtained from Zhao et al. [32]. Enzyme abbreviations: C cellulase, HC hemicellulase, P pectin.
