Info • Myceliophthora thermophila (Sporotrichum thermophile) v2.0


v2.0 (December 2010):The Sporotrichum thermophile finished genome sequence assembly v2.0 was built with the was built with Arachne assembler from whole genome shotgun and paired end sequencing reads, followed by assembly finishing. The nuclear genome sequence from this finished assembly was annotated using the JGI Genome Annotation Pipeline and custom analyses.

Summary statistics for the Sporotrichum thermophile v2.0 release are below.
