Info • Acremonium alcalophilum v1.0
Please note that this organism is for archival use only. Please see the current Acremonium alcalophilum v2.0 site for the latest data and information.


v1.0 (March 2011): The Acremonium alcalophilum genome sequence assembly v1.0 was built with Arachne assembler from whole genome shotgun and paired end sequencing reads. The nuclear genome sequence from this draft assembly was annotated using the JGI Genome Annotation Pipeline and custom analyses. Multiple ESTs sequencing technologies and EST cluster data sets were tested for gene modeling with this genome; the combined 454 and Illumina EST Clusters ("cap3_all",  in the table below) was found best and used in gene modeling.

Summary statistics for the Acremonium alcalophilum v1.0 release are below.
