This genome was sequenced by Genoscope.

The dung-inhabiting ascomycete fungus Podospora anserina is a model used to study various aspects of eukaryotic and fungal biology, such as ageing, prions and sexual development.

Because of its ease of culture and the speed of its sexual cycle, which is completed within a week, the saprobic filamentous ascomycete Podospora anserina has long been used as a model fungus in several laboratories to study general biological problems, such as ageing, meiosis, prion and related protein-based inheritance, and some topics more restricted to fungi, such as sexual reproduction, heterokaryon formation and hyphal interference.
