Info • Ustilago maydis 521 v2.0


The genome sequence and gene models of Ustilago maydis 521 were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were provided by Gertrud Mannhaupt and Ulrich Güldener in collaboration with the group of Regine Kahmann in Nov 16, 2017. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins. Note that this is an updated annotation of the U. maydis version deposited in NCBI, which is also available in MycoCosm.
