Rickenella mellea genome release

1KFG is pleased to announce the public release of the Rickenella mellea genome http://genome.jgi.doe.gov/Rmellea.  Rickenella (Repetobasidiaceae, Hymenochaetales) Rickenella is a small genus that produces minute mushrooms with a typical “agaricoid” morphology (i.e., they have a cap, stipe and gills). This type of fruiting body is very widespread in mushroom forming fungi, particularly in the large order Agaricales, but Rickenella is a member of the Hymenochaetales, an order containing mostly resupinate (crust) and bracket (shelf) fungi.  It was contributed to the 1KFG project by David Hibbett and Laszlo Nagy of Clark University (Massachusetts, USA), and represents the first genome sequenced for the family Repetobasidiaceae.  As always, please contact the lead contact and PIs associated with unpublished 1KFG genomes for permission prior to the use of any data in publications.
