Microbial diversity is the main key point during the studies of microbial ecology. The diversity of edible fungal species in an area affects the nutritional behavior of that community. Hence, the present study has been designed for assessing the diversity of two very important fungal genera involved in eating habits of the Indians i.e. Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Lentinus edodes using different molecular as well as protein markers. The results revealed the divergent nature of these two genera on the basis of their geographical origins. PCR-RFLP analysis of S. cerevisiae strains from Northern India clustered them into two groups one with four strains from different locations and other with fourteen strains, most of which from the same geographical location i.e. Lahaul and Spiti. Two indigenous strains of L. edodes from Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore (LeC and LeI) showed different characteristics as compared to other strains as seen by protein profiling using SDS-PAGE and isozymes. This study gives an indication of these techniques to be a powerful tool to discriminate these fungal species at intraspecies level for their diversity analysis.
