Technical Abstract: We have generated a draft sequence assembly of the F. graminearum genome that is available on the web for download and query. The sequence is of high quality with the entire 36Mb assembly consisting of just 511 contigs (> 2kb) contained within 28 supercontigs (scaffolds). The second genome release (October, 2003) contains automated annotation, preliminary genome analysis and integration with the genetic map. Using organism-specific parameters for gene prediction, 11,640 protein-coding genes have been identified, representing over 1,500 more genes than predicted by the same method for the non-pathogenic filamentous fungi, Neurospora crassa and Aspergillus nidulans. A genetic map has been constructed that anchors 99.5% of the sequence assembly.
