Microbotryum violaceum (GCA_000166175.1)

Microbotryum violaceum Assembly and Gene Annotation

Microbotryum violaceum is a heterobasidiomycete fungal pathogen that causes anther smut in flowering plants including carnations and pinks. Whilst not a significant agricultural pathogen, it is used as a model for studying many aspects of pathogenicity including host-pathogen interactions.

The genomic assembly used comes from the Microbotryum violaceum Sequencing Project, Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, using genomic DNA from Mike Perlin at the University of Louisville, Kentucky, as described here, and deposited in INSDC as Genome Assembly GCA_000166175 (WGS project AEIJ1000000).

Protein-coding gene annotation has been imported from that provided by the Microbotryum violaceum Sequencing Project, Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT.

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.
