Info • Metschnikowia bicuspidata NRRL YB-4993 v1.0


This draft release was produced by combining shredded consensus from Velvet-assembled Illumina data, Roche (454) standard and Roche (454) paired end, which were then assembled with Newbler. Gap closure with gapResolution closed 226 gaps (30%) in initial assembly. The genome was annotated with the JGI annotation pipeline and custom analyses.
