The genome sequence and gene models of Penicillium nordicum DAOMC 185683 were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from NCBI on Oct 2, 2018. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by NCBI and is therefore not automatically updated.

Penicillium nordicum is a common contaminant of protein-rich foods, and is commonly isolated from dry-cured meats and cheeses. The genome of Penicillium nordicum was imported into MycoCosm for comparative purposes.
