This genome was sequenced by the Broad Institute.

Coccidioides immitis is a soil fungus which causes coccidioidomycosis, also known as "valley fever," a serious and sometimes fatal disease in otherwise healthy people. C. immitis has been placed on the NIAID group II list of priority emerging and re-emerging pathogens. Coccidioides species have also become models for studying the evolutionary biology of pathogenic fungi.
