This genome was sequenced as part of the 1000 Fungal Genomes Project - Deep Sequencing of Ecologically-relevant Dikarya. Within the framework of this project, we are sequencing keystone lineages of saprophytic, mycorrhizal, and endophytic fungi that are of special ecological importance. Dozens of sequenced species were harvested from Long Term Observatories to serve as the foundation for a reference database for metagenomics of fungi and for a comprehensive survey of the soil fungal metatranscriptome.

Diaporthe vochysiae LGMF1583 (ex-type culture CMRP3911) was isolated as an endophyte of the medicinal plant Vochysia divergens of the Pantanal biome in Brazil, on June 13, 2016 (S19°32’36.9”, W57°02’21.8”). Endophytic fungi from medicinal plants have been studied as promising sources of metabolites, especially when isolated from biomes of biodiversity hotspots. Such strains are producers of secondary metabolites with antimicrobial potential, which encourages the study of endophytes in this region (Noriler et al., 2018). The D. vochysiae LGMF1583 isolate produces two new carboxamides, vochysiamides A and B, with activity against clinical bacteria (Noriler et al., 2019). Holotype: UPCB 92976 (Herbarium of the Department of Botany, Federal University of Paraná), ex-type culture CMRP3911 (Microbiological Collections of Paraná Network, Federal University of Paraná).
