About the Aspergillus flavus genome
The sequencing project of A. flavus (NRRL 3357) was led by Gary Payne and Ralph Dean at North Carolina State University and funded by the Microbial Genome Sequencing Project-USDA National Research Initiative. Using the whole-genome random shotgun method, this yielded 5x coverage and 24 unassigned supercontigs.
Sequencing and first-pass automated annotation was carried out by the JCVI. This was further improved by EST data provided by USDA/ARS/SRRC (New Orleans). USDA/ARS/SRRC also provided funds for sequence closure and finishing. The final phase, manual refinement of gene annotation, was undertaken by North Carolina State University. A more detailed report can found on the A. flavus project website.
Non coding RNA genes have been annotated using tRNAScan-SE (Lowe, T.M. and Eddy, S.R. 1997), RFAM (Griffiths-Jones et al 2005), and RNAmmer (Lagesen K.,et al 2007); additional analysis tools have also been applied.
