Info • Erythrobasidium hasegawianum ATCC 9536 v1.0


[Dec 2014] The Erythrobasidium hasegawianum genome was sequenced using the Illumina platform and assembled with AllPathsLG release version R49403 (Gnerre et al., 2010).
The assembly is probably diploid, but the two genomes are sufficiently diverged that we were unable to merge them into a haploid assembly. Since the two alleles differ significantly, both datasets are available for download. The default annotation download files are the 'haploid', and the 'diploid' files are clearly marked.
In the genome browser, the haploid set is marked as 'FilteredModels2'. The diploid set is available as the 'FilteredModels1' track. The 'GeneCatalog' is a snapshot of the best models and therefore starts as a copy of 'FilteredModels2'. Users with sufficient privileges can add and remove models from this track.

Mitochondrial genome was assembled separately and is available in the downloads section.
