Vararia minispora EC-137 by Daniel Lindner

Vararia minispora EC-137 was sequenced as part of the 1000 Fungal Genomes Project. The fruiting body of this species is a brownish to mustard-yellow crust that forms on decaying wood. The family in which this species is found, the Lachnocladiaceae, has very unique and divergent morphological characteristics. So, we are interested in knowing whether species in this family also possess unique enzymatic systems to convert lignocellulose to biofuels and other useful products. Species in this family are known to produce white rot decay.
