The genome sequence and gene prediction of Colletotrichum orbiculare 104-T have not been determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were provided by Ken Shirasu at the RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by Ken Shirasu and is therefore not automatically updated. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins.

Members of the genus Colletotrichum are able to collectively infect a wide range of host plants and represent a group of commercially important horticultural and agricultural pathogens. Colletotrichum orbiculare 104-T, originally isolated from cucumber, has been widely used as a model for this group of pathogens as it is able to establish a hemibiotrophic interaction with the model plant N. benthamiana. The genome represents an important resource for the study of this pathogen.
