About the Gaeumannomyces graminis genome

The take-all fungus, Gaeumannomyces graminis (ascomycota), is a major root-rot pathogen of cereals and grasses. All varieties of wheat and barley are susceptible. It is an important disease in winter wheat particularly, and is favoured by conditions of intensive production and monoculture. It survives in the soil on infected residues of one crop, then invades the roots of the following crop, progressively destroying the root system. In exceptional cases it can kill the whole crop; hence the name "take-all".

The Gaeumannomyces graminis genome was released in April 2011 consisting of a 46X whole-genome shotgun assembly with a size of 43 Mb and encodes about 14400 protein-coding genes.
