Info • Neurospora crassa OR74A v2.0


The Neurospora crassa OR74A nuclear genome sequence and gene models were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were provided by the Broad Institute. Please check their data use policies. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by the Broad Institute and is therefore not automatically updated. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into MycoCosm. The JGI Annotation Pipeline was used to add functional annotation to this genome.

We updated the annotation of the N. crassa nuclear genome based on up-to-date gene models from the Broad Institute (Mar 22, 2013). The number of genes increased from 9,907 to 10,785.

The mitochondrial genome sequence and gene models were determined by the Broad Institute and imported from NCBI.
