The genome sequence and gene models of Acremonium chrysogenum ATCC 11550 were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from NCBI on May 25, 2017. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by NCBI and is therefore not automatically updated.

Acremonium chrysogenum ATCC 11550

Genome sequence of Acremonium chrysogenum, the producer of the beta-lactam antibiotic cephalosporin C

The genome sequence of the Acremonium chrysogenum wildtype strain ATCC 11550 was based on an Illumina genome sequencing approach and subsequent de novo assembly. This first complete genome sequence of the main cephalosporin C producer provides new opportunities for scientific research on fungal metabolism and secondary metabolite production.
