A quick update on this site to report we are continuing to sequence genomes at a fast pace due to the efforts of the DOE JGI’s work and collaborating labs preparing DNA and RNA. The number of genomes in the Mycocosm system is now more than 1000 and the 1KFG project has contributed many hundred to this effort. We are working phylogenetic and comparative genomic papers to describe more of what can be learned from these data about the evolution and biology of fungi.
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.
1KFG is pleased to announce the public release of the genome of Thozetella sp. PMI_491 (Berkeley 1881), a Chaetosphaeriaceae fungus found growing on bark in Australia.
1KFG is pleased to announce the public release of the Lophiostoma macrostomum CBS 122681 genome and annotation http://jgi.doe.gov/Lmacrostomum. L. macrostomum is classified in a new family Lophiostomataceae (Dothideomycetes). It is associated with occur on submerged as well as terrestrial wood, but also occurs on leaf litter.
Lophiostoma macrostomum 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 Lophiostomataceae. As always, please contact the lead contact and PIs associated with unpublished 1KFG genomes for permission prior to the use of any data in publications.
1KFG is pleased to announce the public release of the Suillus brevipes genome http://genome.jgi.doe.gov/Suibr1/Suibr1.home.html. Suillus brevipes is an ectomycorrhizal species of Suillaceae (Boletales), and was contributed to the 1KFG project by Sara Branco and Tom Bruns (Bruns Lab) from the University of California at Berkeley. As always, please contact the lead contact and PI associated with unpublished 1KFG genomes for permission prior to the use of any data in publications.
