Info • Aspergillus nidulans


The genome sequence and gene prediction of Aspergillus nidulans (teleomorph Emericella nidulans) were not determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from the Aspergillus Genome Database (AspGD) on January 13 2011. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by AspGD and is therefore not automatically updated. This copy of the genome does not include the mitochondrial chromosome or genes. The JGI Annotation Pipeline was used to add additional functional annotation to AspGD's chromosomes and proteins.

Summary statistics for the Aspergillus nidulans v1.0 release are below.
