Cladosporium sphaerospermum a member of the Cladosporiaceae family (Ascomycota; dothideomycetes). C. sphaerospermum is a halotolerant, cosmopolitan fungus which can be found in a variety of environments, both indoor and outdoor. It has also been found to degrade industrial off-gas emissions, for example aromatic hydrocarbons, organic acids, and ketones (Gottleib, 1963).

The genome sequence and gene models of Cladosporium sphaerospermum UM 843 were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were provided by the Stajich lab in June, 2016. 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 the Stajich lab and is therefore not automatically updated.
