Info • Alternaria alternata ATCC66891


The genome sequence and gene prediction of Alternaria alternata ATCC66891 have not been determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were provided by Christopher Lawrence and Ha X. Dang in Aug 2019 (Alternaria Genomes Database - AGD). In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. We have removed small scaffolds (<1kb) without gene models, and it thus differs from the original data present in the AGD. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by the original authors and is therefore not automatically updated. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins.
