Bringing the Fungus

Jason Stajich at the Hyphal Tip announces the release of the genome sequences and annotations of Neurospora tetrasperma (mat A) and N. discreta (mat A).

Stajich says that they have also done some 454 sequencing of N. tetrasperma that will bring the coverage up to 23X and double the N50.
