The genome sequence and gene prediction of Corynascus sepedonium ATCC 9787 have not been determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from CSFG on July 31, 2022. 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 automatically updated. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins.

Corynascus sepedonium (Myceliophthora sepedonium) basionym Thielavia sepedonium is a fungus belonging to the Chaetomiaceae family. Myceliophthora sepedonium is considered a thermotolerant with a growth temperature optimum at 34 ºC and ability to grow at 45 ºC (1). The ability to produce enzymes involved in plant cell wall degradation has been reported (2,3). The genome of M. sepedonium will provide insight into the Chaetomiaceae family and thermophily.
