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
