The genome sequence and gene predictions of Metarhizium acridum were not determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from NCBI and have been published (Qiang Gao et al., 2011). Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by the author and is therefore not automatically updated.

Metarhizium acridum is an acridid-specific pathogenic fungus to infect and kill locusts and grasshoppers. The mechanism(s) determining host specificity in this fungus remains elusive. The spores of the fungus has been formulated as commercial mycoinsecticides to control locusts or grasshoppers in Africa, Australia, China and North America.
