Cercophora samala CBS 307.81 Minimal Draft

Cercophora samala belongs to the family Podosporaceae of the order Sordariales. First identified as a widespread coprophilous fungus, it is also believed to be endophytic and has also been identified in soil. It is closely related to Podospora anserina, a species used as a model in many laboratories. Strain CBS 307.81 was isolated from cow dung near Yaita, Japan. The sequenced isolate is a homokaryon carrying a mating type homologous to the mat- locus of Podospora anserina derived from the original heterokaryon.
