Pyrenophora tritici-repentis Pt-1C-BFP Assembly and Gene Annotation

About Pyrenophora tritici-repentis

Pyrenophora triciti-repentis is the causal agent of 'tan spot', a major disease in most of common wheat varieties. It can be identified by looking at the leaves for dark oval shaped necrotic tissue with a yellow border.

The Broad Institute sequenced the Pyrenophora tritici-repentis strain Pt-1C-BFP (Race 1) genome at 6.93X coverage using whole genome shotgun (WGS) sequencing. Race 1 is the most prevalent race found in both the US and throughout the world and most of the molecular genetics and applied research has been conducted on race 1 isolates. The first host-selective, protein toxin, Ptr ToxA, was characterized from this race as well. The current assembly (Assembly 1) consists of 703 nuclear genome contigs in 47 supercontigs, and 2 mitochondrial genome contigs in 1 supercontig. The genome assembly has been annotated using automated gene prediction tools.

The assembly and annotation here has been obtained via the records in INSDC (GCA_000149985.1).
