Trichoderma virens Assembly and Gene Annotation
About the Trichoderma virens genome
Trichoderma virens is a haploid filamentous fungi that belongs to the the phylum Ascomycota. It has a beneficial role in plant growth and is used to protect crops from pathogens by rapid and extensive plant root colonization. This organism is present in most soils through the world and is easy to culture which makes it an important model organism for plant-fungi interactions. T. virens has a vast metabolic diversity which includes degradation of hazardous compounds and sequestration of heavy metals.

The genome sequence, assembly and protein coding genes annotation of the Trichoderma virens (strain Gv29-8) genome have been generated by the JGI.
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.
- Comparative genome sequence analysis underscores mycoparasitism as the ancestral life style of Trichoderma.
