The images of Phellinus noxius
Life stages of Phellinus noxius (a) The mycelial mat with young creamy leading front and aged brown section. (b) In advanced stage of decay, the hyphae form a network of brown zone lines permeating the soft and white wood tissue. (Lower left and lower right) (c, d) Basidiocarps are perennial and can be resupinate (c) or grow into a sessile bracket‐like conk with a broad basal attachment (d). The distinctive greyish‐brown surface is the hymenial layer with irregularly polygonal pores, containing four‐spored basidia, ellipsoid and hyaline basidiospores, but no hymenial setae.

The genome sequence and gene models of Phellinus noxius FFPRI411160 were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from Ensembl Fungi on April 11, 2020. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by Ensembl and is therefore not automatically updated. The JGI Annotation Pipeline was used to add additional functional annotation to the author's chromosomes and proteins.

The order Hymenochaetales of white rot fungi contain some of the most aggressive wood decayers causing tree deaths around the world. Despite their ecological importance and the impact of diseases they cause, little is known about the evolution and transmission patterns of these pathogens. As a joint comparative genomics project between Biodiversity Research Center, Academia Sinica (TW), National Taiwan University (TW), Miyazaki University (JP) and Forestry and Forest Products Research Institute (JP) to study this order, Phellinus noxius isolate KPN91 was collected from a dead standing tree of Cinnamomum yabunikkei on Kikaijima, Kagoshima, Japan in March 2007 and subsequently sequenced using the Pacbio RSII platform.
