Info • Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici 104 E137 A-


The genome sequence and gene models of Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici 104 E137 A- were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were provided by Benjamin Schwessinger on Sept 11th, 2017. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by Benjamin Schwessinger and is therefore not automatically updated.
