The genome sequence and gene prediction of Colletotrichum incanum MAFF 238712 have not been determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were provided by Ken Shirasu at the RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by Ken Shirasu and is therefore not automatically updated. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins.

Members of the genus Colletotrichum are able to collectively infect a wide range of host plants, including both monocots and dicots, although individuals from specific species complexes may be restricted in terms of their host ranges. Colletotrichum incanum is a member of the Spaethianum species complex and is closely related to monocot-specific pathogens in the C. graminicola species complex. C. incanum is able to infect not only Arabidopsis and Raphinus sativus from the dicot Brassicaceae family, but also the monocot, Lilium orientalis. Thus comparative genomics of this species may allow insights into adaptations for host specificity.
