Fenestella fenestrata is a member of the order Pleosporales (Dothideomycetes) and was sequenced as part of the 1000 Fungal Genomes Project. The 1000 Fungal Genomes Project aims to fill in gaps in the Fungal Tree of Life by sequencing at least two reference genomes from the more than 500 recognized families of Fungi. This project additionally aims to inform research on plant-microbe interactions, microbial emission and capture of greenhouse gasses, and environmental metagenomic sequencing.
Fenestella fenestrata ATCC 66461 was isolated by from dead branches of Acer sp. in Salk County, Wisconsin. After 7 days on YM Medium at 25°C in the lab, colonies are off-white to buff, velutinosus; reverse colorless. Hyphae hyaline and guttulate and swollen with age at ~8 weeks.
