Thanks for your question about pathogenic fungi. I can route you to several resources, but it would be helpful to know the infected plant(s) you are inquiring about, since fungi are often quite specific in the plants (or at least the family) they invade. This Colorado Extension article discusses tree root fungi, this covers dry beans, and this covers winter wheat. Some of the resources are quite readable, but others are directed to professional arborists and forest service workers. Can you provide more information? Thanks!
