Info • Zopfia rhizophila v1.0


[Jul 2013] The Zopfia rhizophila genome was sequenced using Illumina HiSeq and PacBio v3 chemistry.  Illumina sequences were assembled using AllPathsLG, and gaps were subsequently closed by PacBio sequences using PBJelly.

Summary statistics for the Zopfia rhizophila CBS 207.26 v1.0 release are below.
