Puccinia graminis Assembly and Gene Annotation
About the Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici genome
Puccinia graminis is the causal agent of stem rust that causes serious disease in cereal crops. It is an obligate plant pathogen.
The sequencing, assembly and annotation of protein coding genes from the Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (CRL 75-36-700-3) genome has been generated by the Broad Institute as part of their work on the Puccinia group of fungi (http://www.broadinstitute.org/annotation/genome/puccinia_group/Info.html). The genome has been sequenced to a coverage of 12x and was most recently updated in 2008. It consists of 393 scaffolds with a total size of 84 Mb. The current release includes the most recent gene set from Broad Institute that consists in 15,800 protein coding genes submitted to INSDC in 16/12/2011.
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.
The variation data available in this site was generated by resequencing of the reference strain 7a (CRL 75-36-700-3), race SCCL, by the Broad Institute.
