The genome of Mucor lanceolatus UBOCC-A-109153 was not sequenced at JGI. Rather, it was sequenced and annotated by the Jany lab at the Université de Bretagne Occidentale and was imported into MycoCosm for comparative purposes. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by the Jany lab and therefore is not automatically updated.

Mucor lanceolatus UBOCC-A-109153 was originally isolated from a Tomme cheese by Antoine Hermet in 2010. The Mucor genus (Mucoromycota, Mucorales, Mucoraceae) is currently classified in the Mucoromycota phylum (Spatafora et al., 2017). M. lanceolatus produces sporangia above columellae, sometimes lanceolated, borne on repeatedly and sympodially branched sporangiophores (Hermet et al., 2012). Zygospores are unknown. M. lanceolatus has only been isolated from cheese (Hermet et al., 2012). The whole genome of M. lanceolatus UBOCC-A-109153 will provide key information to shed new light on early diverging fungi evolution.
