The genome sequence and gene prediction of Parauncinula polyspora have not been determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from the Frantzeskakis et al., 2019 genome supplemental data share at github on September 9, 2020. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by the manuscript authors and is therefore not automatically updated. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins.

Powdery mildew fungi are widespread and agronomically relevant phytopathogens causing major yield losses. Their genomes have disproportionately large numbers of mobile genetic elements, and they have experienced a significant loss of highly conserved fungal genes. The Asian oak tree pathogen, Parauncinula polyspora, is a species that diverged early during evolution from the remaining powdery mildew fungi. The P. polyspora draft genome is comparatively compact, has a low number of protein-coding genes, and, despite the absence of a dedicated genome defense system, lacks the massive proliferation of repetitive sequences.
