7/25/2008    Release of Magnaporthe grisea 70-15, partially finished -- Assembly and Annotation

The initial release of our partially finished sequence assembly of Magnaporthe grisea strain 70-15. The sequence traces from the Broad Institute sequencing can be downloaded from the NCBI trace repository. This Whole Genome Shotgun project has been deposited at DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank under the project AACU00000000. The version described in this release is the third version, AACU03000000.

Important information about this release can be found here.

This initial release allows:
  • BLAST searches against our partially finished genome assembly
  • Downloads of the consensus sequence and additional files for the genome assembly
  • Search and download a particular region of the genome assembly

The annotated release presents:

5/7/2007    Protein-coding gene predictions overlapping Ribosomal gene coding regions flagged

The loci for the following protein-coding gene predictions have been flagged due to the fact that they overlap regions of genome predicted to contain ribosomal RNA genes. They have been flagged as "overlaps ribosomal RNA region" on the Gene Details reports and have been segregated into separate files in the Downloads page and on the BLAST page.

1/5/2006    Initial release of 7X sequence assembly of Magnaporthe grisea 70-15

Magnaporthe grisea sequence release 5.0 represents both a new assembly incorporating the results of an automated gap filling process as well as automated annotation (gene set version 5.0). The gap-filling process used is the first stage of producing a finished M. grisea genome sequence. This work has reduced the number of contigs from 2273 to 739, and contributed approximately 1.5 Mb of new sequence to the assembly compared to version 2.0.

Gene set version 5.0 represents an increase of 1,732 genes compared to the previous release, along with an increase in the accuracy from 83% (MG2.4) to 89% (MG5.5). For detailed summary of the changes to the gene set, see gene finding report. A file listing the changes between version 4 and version 5 can be found at: magnaporthe_grisea5_to_mg2_mapping.csv

This release of this assembly and corresponding annotations includes:

  • A predicted protein gene set (12,841 genes).
  • BLAST databases for the entire assembly, as well as individal gene and protein predictions
  • Precomputed results of BlastX and HMMer Analyses
  • Optical map of Mangaporthe grisea and the correlations with the genetic and physical maps
  • Alternative proteins predicted by various gene callers (Genewise, FgeneSH,FgeneSH+, GeneID)
  • tRNA predictions
  • Search and visualizations for all the features
  • Search and download a particular region of the genome assembly
  • Downloads of the consensus sequence and additional files for the genome assembly and gene predictions
  • Links between gene predictions published in previous releases
