Info • Cryptococcus neoformans var neoformans JEC21


The genome of Cryptococcus neoformans var neoformans JEC21 has not been sequenced by the JGI, but by TIGR. The genome sequence and gene predictions were obtained from NCBI GenBank (RefSeq: PRJNA10698). Note that the gene names of alternative splice forms on the same locus have been given suffixes in order to distinguish them (e.g. *.t01, *.t02, etc). JGI Eukaryotic tools were set up to assist with manual curation and comparative analysis of fungal genomes.

Summary statistics for the Cryptococcus neoformans JEC21 v1.0 release are below.
