The Fusarium culmorum UK99 genome sequence and gene models were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI) but were downloaded from Ensembl Fungi on Apr 11, 2020. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by Ensembl and is therefore not automatically updated. 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 Annotation Pipeline was used to add the functional annotation to this genome.

Fusarium culmorum is a fungal plant pathogen and the causal agent of seedling blight, foot rot, ear blight, stalk rot, common root rot and other diseases of cereals, grasses, and a wide variety of monocots and dicots. In coastal dunegrass (Leymus mollis), F. culmorum is a nonpathogenic symbiont conferring both salt and drought tolerance to the plant.
