The Cercospora berteroae CBS 538.71 genome sequence and gene models were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI) but were downloaded from Ensembl Fungi on Apr 11, 2020. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by Ensembl and is therefore not automatically updated. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into MycoCosm. The JGI Annotation Pipeline was used to add the functional annotation to this genome.

Cercospora leaf spot, caused by the fungal pathogen Cercospora beticola, is the most destructive foliar disease of sugar beet worldwide.
