Info • Acremonium alcalophilum v2.0


v2.0 (June 2011): This Acremonium alcalophilum finished genome sequence assembly v2.0 was improved over the v1.0 assembly using primer walking and manual checking using phred/phrap/consed. all detectable errors and misassemblies have been corrected where possible. 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.
