Due to the emerging COVID-19 pandemic, JGI will not be accepting or processing any samples because of reduced onsite staffing until further notice.
Info • Tuber melanosporum Mel28 v1.0
Please note that this organism is for archival use only. Please see the current Tuber melanosporum Mel28 v1.2 site for the latest data and information.


The genome sequence and gene prediction of Tuber melanosporum were not determined by the JGI. The genome sequence was downloaded from Genoscope's Tuber Genome Browser on September 21 2011. The gene prediction was originally done by Genoscope but was delivered to JGI by Emmanuelle Morin at INRA. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by Genoscope or INRA and is therefore not automatically updated. This copy of the genome does not include the mitochondrial chromosome or genes. The JGI Annotation Pipeline was used to add additional functional annotation to Genoscope and INRA's scaffolds and gene models.
