Info • Caulochytrium protostelioides ATCC 52028 v1.0


[August 2015] The Caulochytrium protostelioides ATCC52028 genome was sequenced using Illumina ( 2x151 bp .27 kb, 2x151 bp .5 kb).  Please note these libraries were made from cultured DNA, not single cells.  Each fastq file was QC filtered for artifact/process contamination and subsequently assembled together with AllPathsLG version R49403, (Gnerre et al., 2010). The assembly was annotated using the JGI Annotation pipeline.

Summary statistics for the Caulochytrium protosteloides ATCC 52028 v1.0 release are below.
