Two new Zygo genomes

Two new zygomycete genomes were released this week at JGI: Mucor heterogamus NRRL 1489 v1.  and Mycotypha africana NRRL 2978 v1.0.  Both of these genomes were sequenced as part of the ZyGoLife project and the associated CSP on early diverging fungi.  We are very excited about the pace of zygomycete genome sequencing and the ability to crack open the black box of zygomycete evolution.
