Info • Phycomyces blakesleeanus UBC1 v1.0


The Phycomyces blakesleeanus UBC1 genome was sequenced with PacBio, assembled with Falcon, and annotated with the JGI Annotation Pipeline. Mitochondrial genome was assembled separately and is available in the downloads section. As UBC1 is very closely related to NRRL 1555 (Phybl2), when predicted gene models were nearly identical to those from NRRL 1555, manual curations were carried over to UBC1 models to maximize details on gene function. A track of models from NRRL 1555 and their locations in UBC1 are also available on the genome browser.
