Metarhizium majus ARSEF 297 (GCA_000814945) Assembly and Gene Annotation
About Metarhizium majus ARSEF 297 (GCA_000814945)
Metarhizium majus is the new name given to a group of fungal isolates that are known to be virulent against Scarabaeidae, a family of beetles. Previously, this species has had variety status in Metarhizium anisopliae (var. majus) and its name is derived from characteristically very large spores (typically 2.5–4 µm x 10–14 µm long) for the genus Metarhizium. There has been considerable interest in developing isolates of this species into mycoinsecticides: especially for coconut and oil palm beetle pests in SE Asia, the Pacific region and Africa.
It is an anamorph, its telomorphic form is Cordyceps brittlebankisoides.
The annotation presented is derived from annotation submitted to INSDC with the assembly accession GCA_000814945.1, with additional non-coding genes derived from Rfam. For more details, please visit INSDC annotation import.
