The genome sequence and gene predictions of Fusarium fujikuroi were not determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from NCBI and have been published (Philipp Wiemann et al., 2013). Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by the author and is therefore not automatically updated.

Also known as Gibberella fujikuroi.

Fusarium fujikuroi is known to produce a broad spectrum of secondary metabolites beside gibberellin, of which only some of them could be linked to known gene clusters so far. The genome sequence will enable identification of all genes coding for key-enzymes of secondary metabolites, the polyketide synthases (PKS), non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPS), terpene cyclases (TC) and dimethylallyl diphosphate synthases (DMATS), thereby giving the opportunity of understanding the hidden biochemical potential of putative beneficial and/or harmful natural products.
