Fusarium avenaceum strain:WV21P1A Genome sequencing and assembly

posted on 2024-06-11, 06:58 authored by USDA ARS
Fusarium avenaceum is a generalist fungus that can infect many different crops and is a concern for food safety due to its ability to produce toxins. Genome sequences are valuable resources to study fungal biology including the genes involved in the crop infection pathway and genes involved in the production of toxins. Currently, there are 12 available genomes for Fusarium avenaceum. However, all of them were produced using short-read sequencing resulting in fragmented and incomplete genomes sequences. Here, we present a new genome assembly for Fusarium avenaceum that is of higher quality than all other previously released genomes. We accomplished this by using the last long-read sequencing technology to assemble a genome sequence that matches the expected chromosome number and thoroughly annotate the genes. Our annotation also included an analysis of the gene clusters that are associated with toxin and other biochemical production pathways. This genomic resource will facilitate further research on plant pathology, food safety, and Fusarium sp. diversity.
