We will have a brief downtime on Tuesday May 28 between 8:45 and 9:30 am PDT due to network equipment maintenance.
Info • Acidomyces richmondensis BFW (metagenome-extracted)


December 2011. This is a de novo Velvet assembly of Illumina reads from metagenomic sequencing of a streamer community from the 5-way site in the Richmond Mine at Iron Mountain, CA, USA. The assembly was guided by tetranucleotide binning with Emergent Self-Organizing Maps (Dick et al. 2009) and manually curated for misassemblies and incorrectly binned contigs.  This genome was sequenced by the JGI and assembled in the laboratory of Jillian Banfield at the University of California, Berkeley.

September 2014.  The genome scaffold 5WFSArich_Contig_01615 was found to likely be of Sulfobacillus origin.  We have therefore demoted the 12 models found on this scaffold from the gene catalog.
