New Zygo genomes - March 2017 edition
The zygo-elves and the JGI have been hard at work at end of 2016 and early 2017 growing and preparing samples for sequencing. Following sequencing, assembly and annotation work at JGI the following are now available genomes - most were performed with PacBio so there are 25-400 contigs for most of these.
Good work Spatafora (Ying Chang) and Stajich labs (Derreck Carterhouse and Jericho Ortanez) with support from Matt Smith’s lab at U Florida esp the work of Nicole Reynolds and Gerald Benny who isolated and/or verified many of these strains.

We are preparing the Tier II of species for the Early Diverging Fungi - 1KFG CSP with another set of 50+ zygomycetes and zoosporic fungi for the next 2 years.
These are publicly available but please contact the authors for any manuscripts which make use of these data prior to their formal publication as the groups who prepared these are working on their own analyses of these data related to phylogenomics, lifestyle and genome evolution.
