Info • Phanerochaete chrysosporium RP-78 v2.2


This draft was generated using a whole genome shotgun method. Genomic DNA was used to create six main libraries; four small insert (2 - 4 kb) pUC18 libraries, one medium insert (6 - 8 kb) pMCL200 library, and one large insert (35 - 40 kb) pCC1Fos library. A total of 611,025 end sequences were used in the assembly, corresponding to approximately 10.6X sequence depth.


  • v2.0 (February 2005): A total of 611,025 paired sequence fragments (10.6X coverage) were assembled with the JGI assembler, JAZZ. The assembly contains 35.1 million base pairs of non-redundant sequence in 232 scaffolds greater than 1 Kbp. 90% of the assembly was in 21 scaffolds, while 50% was found in 8 scaffolds longer than 1.9 Mbp.
  • v1.0 (February 2002): A total of 619,903 paired sequence fragments (10.5X coverage) were assembled with the JGI assembler, JAZZ. The assembly contains 29.6 million base pairs of non-repetitive sequence in 349 scaffolds greater than 3 kbp. 90% of the assembly was in 165 scaffolds. 50% was found in 45 scaffolds longer than 203 Kbp. Gene modeling and analysis were performed at the JGI and ORNL.
Summary statistics for the Phanerochaete chrysosporium v3.0 release are below.
