Schizosaccharomyces japonicus Assembly and Gene Annotation

About the Schizosaccharomyces japonicus genome

Schizosaccharomyces japonicus, unlike the other Schizosaccaromycae species, rapidly adopts a hyphal growth form


The genomic assembly used comes from the Schizosaccharomyces Comparative Genome Project, Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, described in this article, and deposited in INSDC as Genome Assembly GCA_000149845.2 (WGS project AATM2000000).
