The genome sequence of Fusarium oxysporum Fo5176 have not been determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from NCBI on Oct 14, 2020. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. The JGI Fungal Annotation Pipeline was used to annotate this genome.

Fusarium oxysporum, an ascomycete fungus in the Nectriaceae family, is predominant in native soils. These diverse and adaptable fungi have been found in soils ranging from the Sonoran Desert to tropical and temperate forests, grasslands, and tundra. F. oxysporum strains are ubiquitous soil inhabitants that have the ability to exist as saprophytes, and degrade lignin and complex carbohydrates associated with soil debris. They are pervasive plant endophytes that can colonize plant roots and may even protect plants or form the basis of disease suppression. While some species may be harmless or even beneficial plant endophytes or soil saprophytes, many strains within the F. oxysporum species complex are pathogenic to plants, especially in agricultural settings.
