Info • Aspergillus niger (phoenicis Corda) Thom ATCC 13157 v1.0


March 2014. The Aspergillus phoenicis (Corda) Thom genome was sequenced using the Illumina platform. The data were initially assembled with Velvet (Zerbino and Birney, 2008), filtered to remove mitochondrial contigs and finally assembled with AllPathsLG release version R47710, (Gnerre et al., 2010).  The assembled genome was then annotated with the JGI annotation pipeline and custom analyses.

Summary statistics for the Aspergillus phoenicis (Corda) Thom ATCC 13157 v1.0 release are below.
