The transcriptome and whole genome of the ascomycete Nectriopsis sporangiicola NRRL 22127 = CBS 166.74 (Pezizomycotina, Sordariomycetes) were sequenced within the framework of the 1000 Fungal Genomes community sequencing project to represent a member of the family Bionectriaceae (Order Hypocreales, Rossman et al. 1999). Species within this family typically produce white to orange perithecia on myxomycetes (true slime molds), lichens and free-living fungi. Nectriopsis sporangiicola NRRL 22127 was collected growing on the myxomycetous true slime mold Physarum polycephalum (Kingdom Amoebozoa) in New Jersey. Mature perithecia produce asci in which eight 1-septate ascospores are produced (Samuels 1988). During the asexual reproductive phase, N. sporangiicola produces a Gliocladium-like conidial state (Rehner and Samuels 1994). The whole genome should provide a window into the metabolic potential of this bionectriaceous fungus.
