The genome sequence and gene models of Erysiphe necator c were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from NCBI on May 25, 2017. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by NCBI and is therefore not automatically updated.

Erysiphe necator strain:c (grape powdery mildew)

Erysiphe necator strain:c Genome sequencing and assembly

Erysiphe necator, the causal agent of grapevine powdery mildew, is an agriculturally and economically important fungal pathogen. The goal of this project is to produce a high quality reference strain for E. necator. The E. necator isolate C-strain genome was sequenced at 76X coverage using an Illumina shotgun sequencing approach. The source of DNA was conidia collected from infected grapevine leaves at 20 days post inoculation. The reads were assembled into 5,936 scaffolds. The E. necator genome has an estimated size of 125Mb and a repetitive content of 60%.
