Sequence of the Agaricus bisporus H97 haploid genome (ca. 8.5 x coverage) is expected to enter a period of ‘hand-on’ community annotation within the next couple of months.
Anybody interested in participating in the annotation effort should read our community circular genomecircular_20090615.pdf and contact MC for further information

Anton Sonnenberg (PRI Wageningen) has recently submitted a detailed Agaricus bisporus linkage map to the JGI, based mainly on data provided by PRI and Marie Foulongne (INRA Bordeaux).
Data on known repeat elements, from Rick Kerrigan and Anton, has also been sent to the JGI.
It is hoped that these data will help resolve chromosomal groups in current scaffolds, advancing the ‘genome improvement’ that is taking place prior to machine annotation.

DOE JGI Releases Expanded Version of Phytozome.net: Clearinghouse for Comparative Plant Genomics Data
An enhanced version of Phytozome.net, a web portal for comparative plant genomics geared to advance biofuel, food, feed, and fiber research, has been released by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI).
Phytozome provides a central “hub” for web access to a rapidly growing number of plant genomes, and includes tools for visualization of plant genomes and associated annotations, sequence analysis, and bulk, as well as targeted, plant data retrieval. The gene families available in Phytozome, defined at several evolutionarily significant epochs, provide a framework for the transfer of functional information to important biofuel and agricultural crops from model plant systems, as well as allowing users to explore land plant evolution.
The 4.0 release of Phytozome now spans 14 plant genomes, including 8 that have been sequenced at the DOE JGI

JGI have recently announced that the 8X sequencing & draft assembly for Agaricus bisporus (H97, lead homokaryon) is complete.
This assembly will now undergo a machine annotation with Igor Grigoriev’s JGI team (ca. 3-4 months). Draft assembly/annotation will then transfer to the community for hands-on detailed annotations (ca. 6 months). When these steps are complete, the Agaricus bisporus draft genome assembly and annotation will become publicly available via the JGI web portal, and both the assembly & annotation will be deposited in GenBank.
An extensive Agaricus bisporus U1 (H97 x H39 heterokaryon) EST data set has also been clustered to the genome.
Jeremy Schmutz of the JGI has provided an assembly report jgiupdate_8x_200903_blog.pdf
Library construction for the second homokaryon, Agaricus bisporus var. burnettii JB137-S8 is now in progress.

Thanks are due (again) to Rick Kerrigan and his team at Sylvan Inc. who have prepared and submitted gDNA of Agaricus bisporus var. burnettii JB137-S8 to the JGI. This second homokaryon will most likely be sequenced using Illumina-454 technologies when the lead homokaryotic H97 genome reaches 8x coverage.
Further information on the Agaricus bisporus strains being sequenced in the JGI project is available in our original proposal, which is available at http://www.warwick.ac.uk/go/agaricusgenome

The JGI have recently announced details of their 4th Annual User Meeting
U.S. Department of Energy / Joint Genome Institute (JGI)
Marriott Hotel in Walnut Creek, California. March 25-27, 2009
Significantly, the event includes a 'Eukaryotic Annotation Workshop' aimed at PIs and collaborators of eukaryotic projects with genomes annotated or expected for annotation in 2009, as well as new members of user communities interested in Community Annotation.

Thanks also to Rick Kerrigan who has deposited the JB137-S8 homokaryon with the FGSC collection. This represents a full compliment of strains involved in the JGI genome sequencing of Agaricus bisporus

Many thanks to Anton Sonnenberg who has deposited various Agaricus bisporus var. bisporus strains being used in the JGI project with the Fungal Genetics Stock Centre (FGSC)
Kevin McCluskey (Curator, FGSC) has already asigned the following FGSC accession numbers
10389 Agaricus bisporus var. bisporus H97 (homokaryon)
10390 Agaricus bisporus var. bisporus H39 (homokaryon)
10391 Agaricus bisporus var. bisporus Horst U1 (heterokaryon)

Andy Bailey has kindly drawn my attention to the online JGI annotation tutorial:
As our Agaricus bisporus sequencing project progresses, and with the promise of 4x sequence in Q1-2009, this is a probably a good time for genome novices (like myself) to get familiar with the JGI tools.
Other JGI-led training should take place as the project advances.
