Info • Pneumocystis jirovecii


The genome sequence and gene prediction of Pneumocystis jirovecii were not determined by the JGI, but were Downloaded from NCBI and have been published (pubmed: 23269827). Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by the author and is therefore not automatically updated. This copy of the genome does not include the mitochondrial chromosome or genes. The JGI Annotation Pipeline was used to add additional functional annotation to the author's chromosomes and proteins.
