EST and Fosmid clone Availability
A number of libraries of ESTs have been sequenced for this project. You may obtain clones from the Fungal Genetic Stock Center at http://www.fgsc.net. Fosmid (Genomic) clones that were generated and used in this project are also available at the FGSC. Due to space constraints, we do not maintain stocks of the 4- and 10-kb plasmid clones used in the assembly.
