Info • Piptocephalis tieghemiana RSA 1565 v1.0


[July 2018] The Piptocephalis tieghemiana RSA 1565 genome was sequenced with illumina and extracted computationally from co-culture with Umbelopsis sp. nov. AD052. Briefly, metagenomic scaffold sequences were first binned into two groups by metabat (v2.12.1), then split into two separate datasets using (bbtools) and assembled using AllPathsLG version R49403. Resulting scaffolds were then filtered by homology to closely related genomes and scaffolds matching neither lineage were discarded. This assembly was then annotated using the JGI Annotation Pipeline. Annotations can be further improved upon receipt of transcriptomic data. Mitochondrial genome was assembled separately and is available in the downloads section.
