Cylindrobasidium torrendii genome release

1KFG is pleased to announce the public release of the Cylindrobasidium torrendii genome http://genome.jgi.doe.gov/Cylto1/Cylto1.home.html.  The genus Cylindrobasidium belongs to the Physalacriaceae family of the Agaricales.  This family includes the well-known pathogen Armillaria mellea (honey mushroom). Unlike that species, however, Cylindrobasidium has a simple, crust-like fruiting body, covering the surface of woody substrate.  It was contributed to the 1KFG project by David Hibbett and Laszlo Nagy of Clark University (Massachusetts, USA), and represents the second genus sequenced for the family Physalacriaceae.  As always, please contact the lead contact and PIs associated with unpublished 1KFG genomes for permission prior to the use of any data in publications.
