1KFG updates – another 100 genomes

We’ve been busy preparing DNA/RNA samples and data analsyes and bad about blogging about the data release progress — but see linked below the last 100 genomes released by JGI from 1KFG and other fungal projects over the last 9 months. There are more than 800  genomes in the JGI Mycocosm resource (counting a few that are about to be released as public).

Publications using these data are published or in press and will write a more complete summary in the coming months.

Lots of new 1KFG genomes

Too many genomes to count and list and go into detail. See JGI recent releases here

I’ll highlight that 3 Neocallimastigomycota  genomes from early diverging lineages have been released including updated assemblies and annotations.

Several Mucoromycota and related genomes from the Zygolife project were also released.

JGI public genome releases late 2015 – Jan 2016

Here are the most recently released fungal genomes at JGI through the 1KFG project and others. A lot of Basidiomycetes and a few species from the Zygolife project are these rolled out.

Latest public genome releases

Here’s a snapshot of the last set of Genome releases for 1KFG and JGI projects taken from JGI release page.

1KFG@Asilomar

See many of you at Fungal Genetics@Asilomar next week or the JGI user meeting the following week. We are formulating some action plans for more sampling and also preparing a first dataset of 300 genomes for analysis and release. Will prepare update notes from the meetings and the current and future plans for sequencing through the JGI CSP and affiliated projects.

Pseudovirgaria hyperparasitica genome released

1KFG is pleased to announce the public release of the genome of Pseudovirgaria hyperparasitica CBS 121739  P. hyperparasitica  is part of an unclassified group of Dothideomycetes  (Ascomycota; Dothideomycetes) and its phylogenetic position will be evaluated as part of phylogenomic analyses in the 1KFG project.

Pseudovirgaria hyperparasitica  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  As always, please contact the PIs associated with unpublished 1KFG genomes for permission prior to the use of any data in publications.

Tothia fuscella genome released

1KFG is pleased to announce the public release of the genome of Tothia fuscella CBS 130266  T. fuscella is classified in the family Microthyriaceae (Ascomycota; Dothideomycetes;Microthyriales), and is currently the first completed genome for the family and one of two targeted – the other is Microthyrium microscopicum which is nearing completion at JGI as well.

Tothia fuscella  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.

Clathrospora elynae genome released

1KFG is pleased to announce the public release of the genome of Clathrospora elynae CBS 161.51.  C. elynae  is classified in the family Diademaceae (Ascomycota; Dothideomycetes;Pleosporales), and is currently one of two targeted completed genomes from this family.

Clathrospora elynae 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.

Verruculina enalia genome released

1KFG is pleased to announce the public release of the genome of Verruculina enalia  CBS 304.66V. enalia  is classified in the family Didymosphaeriaceae (Ascomycota; Dothideomycetes;Pleosporales), and is currently the only completed genome from this family and one of two targeted for the family.
