v.1.0 (February, 2009): The assembly release version 1.0 of whole genome shotgun reads was constructed with the Arachne assembler, using paired end sequencing reads at a coverage of ~8.59X. After trimming for vector and quality, this genome assembled into 176 main genome scaffolds totaling 37.3 Mbp. Roughly half of the genome is contained in 6 scaffolds all at least 2.3 Mbp in length.

The current draft release, version 1.0, includes a total of 9948 gene models predicted and functionally annotated using the JGI annotation pipeline.
