Assembly v1 (September 2006): 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 ~7.49X. After trimming for vector and quality, 506287 reads assembled into 475 main genome scaffolds totaling 55.9 Mbp. Roughly half of the genome is contained in 15 scaffolds all at least 1.0 MB in length.

Annotation v2 (1 March 2010) is a consensus gene set predicted by the JGI Annotation Pipeline, using a variety of cDNA-based, protein-based, and ab initio gene modelers, as well as Annotation v1 genes mapped to the v2 scaffolds. After filtering for homology and expression support, a total of 16528 genes were structurally and functionally annotated:
# of genes 16528
Gene density 306.4 genes / Mbp scaffold
Ave.gene length 1627.7 nt
Ave. protein length 352.8 aa
Ave. exon frequency 4.5 exons / gene
% genes with introns 89 %
% models with start+stop codons 90 %
% genes with NR hits 67 %
% genes with Pfam domains 44 %
% genes with TM domains 16 %
% genes with ESTs 33 %
% genes in multigene families 76 %

Annotation v1 (November 2006): The draft annotation, version 1.0, includes a total of 14,792 gene models predicted and functionally annotated using the JGI Annotation Pipeline.
