The genome sequence and gene prediction of Thermocarpiscus australiensisATCC 28236 have not been determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from CSFG on July 31, 2022. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. Please note that this copy of the genome is not automatically updated. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins.

Thielavia australiensis, currently Thermocarpiscus australiensis (1), is a thermophilic fungus belonging to the Chaetomiaceae family with growth temperature range between 20-55 ºC and an optimal temperature of growth at 45 ºC (2). The characterization of a lytic polysaccharide monooxygenase (LPMO) AA9 has been reported (3).  The genome sequence of T. australiensis will provide a new source of thermostable enzymes and allow a more extensive comparison within the Chaetomiaceae family to study thermophily in fungi.
