Rhizophagus irregularis (Glomus intraradices) genome release

The long road of sequencing a Glomus genome has borne the fruit of a recently released genome for Rhizophagus irregularis (Glomus intraradices) http://genome.jgi.doe.gov/Gloin1/Gloin1.home.html.  R. irregularis is an  arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus which forms symbiotic relationship with plant roots in important crop plants (Soybean, Rice, Maize, Poplar trees). The genome was sequenced through the JGI Mycorrhizal sequencing CSP.  It was contributed by collaborators at INRA, Oak Ridge National Lab,  and  Université de Toulouse. As always, please contact the lead contact and PIs associated with unpublished 1KFG genomes for permission prior to the use of any data in publications.

Also see “The long hard road to a completed Glomus intraradices genome” for some background in the previous description of the work that needed to be done.
