- Tuber melanosporum Vittad is a kind of symbiotic fungus, belongs to the Ascomycota and forms mutualistic symbiosis with tree and shrub roots. This truffle has a high value in a global market and is cultivated in many countries of both hemispheres. Due to its intense and complex aroma, T. melanosporum is considered the queen of truffles, and is one of the most highly praised and priced gourmet food worldwide. The publication of the T. melanosporum genome has given researchers a unique opportunity to learn more about the biology of the fungus .
