1KFG is pleased to announce the public release of the Saccharata proteae CBS 121410 genome. S. proteae is classified in the family Saccharataceae (Ascomycota; Dothideomycetes; Botryosphaeriales), is also known as Phyllachora proteae or Botryosphaeria proteae, and is the first sequenced genome from this family. It is commonly associated with leaf tip die-back and spots of Protea and Leucospermum plant species.
Saccharata proteae was contributed to the 1KFG project by Pedro Crous and Manfred Binder at CBS-KNAW. As always, please contact the PIs associated with unpublished 1KFG genomes for permission prior to the use of any data in publications.
