Info • Septoria populicola v1.0


The genome of Septoria populicola was not sequenced by the Joint Genome Institute, but by Phil Tanguay (Research Scientist), Laurentian Forestry Centre (Canadian Forest Service), Succ.Sainte-Foy (Quebec) and Richard Hamelin (University of British Columbia, Canada) using Illumina technology. The reads were assembled with Newbler. The JGI fungal genome annotation pipeline was used to predict and annotate genes and other genomic features. Since no ESTs are available for S. populicola, ESTs from the closely related species S. musiva were used to assist in gene prediction.
