In the "1KFG: Deep Sequencing of Ecologically-relevant Dikarya" project (CSP1974), we are sequencing keystone lineages of plant-interacting fungi and saprophytic fungi that are of special ecological importance for understanding terrestrial ecosystems. In addition, comparative genome analysis with saprotrophic, mycorrhizal and pathogenic fungi will provide new insights into the specific and conserved adaptations associated with each fungal lifestyle.

The Hypoxyplaceae family was characterized separately from Xylariaceae according to Wendt et al. (2018), by taxonomic studies. Furthermore, the species present in these families have been described having a great potential for producing metabolites (Becker and Stadler, 2021).

The isolate Hypoxylon vinosopulvinatum LGMF1613 an endophytic fungus isolated from the medicinal plant Stryphnodendron adstringens (from the Brazilian Cerrado) was sequenced as part of the project "1000 fungal genomes". This strain was selected due to the potential of secondary metabolites, according to Noriler et al. (2018).

Researchers who wish to publish analyses using data from unpublished CSP genomes are respectfully required to contact the PI and JGI to avoid potential conflicts on data use and coordinate other publications with the CSP master paper(s).
