1KFG is pleased to announce the public release of the Dissoconium aciculare genome and annotation http://genome.jgi.doe.gov/Daciculare. D. aciculare is classified in the family Dissoconiaceae (Dothideomycetes). It is reported to be hyperparasitic on powdery mildew while some members of the Capnodiales order are plant pathogens or commensals.
Dissoconium aciculare was contributed to the 1KFG project by Manfred Binder and Pedro Crous of Centraalbureau voor Schimmelcultures KNAW, Netherlands, and represents the first genome sequenced for the family Dissoconiaceae. As always, please contact the lead contact and PIs associated with unpublished 1KFG genomes for permission prior to the use of any data in publications.
