Info • Rhodosporidium toruloides IFO0880 v4.0


[June 2017] [May 2017] The Rhodosporidum toruloides IFO0880 genome was sequenced externally in the lab of Dr. Jeffrey Skerker using PacBio, assembled with HGAP, then annotated with the JGI annotation pipeline. This assembly improves upon the v3.0 by separating the mitochondria from the main genome assembly, which is now provided separately in the downloads section. Additionally, the default analysis track was updated to reflect manual curations done by the Skerker lab on the previous version (R. toruloides v3.0).

Summary statistics for the Rhodosporidium toruloides IFO0880 v4.0 release are below.
