Info • Histoplasma capsulatum NAm1


This genome was sequenced by the Broad Institute. Please check their data use policies.

For Histoplasma capsulatum class NAmI strain WU24, the Broad Institute produced whole genome shotgun sequence from two plasmid libraries (4kb and 10kb inserts) and a Fosmid library. The resulting 7X assembly was made public in September 2005, and the results of automated genome annotation was made public May, 2006.
