v.1.0 (October 2005): The assembly release version 1.0 of whole genome shotgun reads was constructed with the JGI assembler, Jazz, using paired end sequencing reads at a coverage of ~10.4X. After trimming for vector and quality, 380,700 reads assembled into 588 main genome scaffolds totaling 31 MB. Roughly half of the genome is contained in 12 scaffolds all at least 800 KB in length.

The current draft release, version 1.0, includes a total of 10,681 gene models predicted and functionally annotated using the JGI annotation pipeline.
