Agaricus bisporus 8x Release [project ID 4084801 / March 2009]

JGI have recently announced that the 8X sequencing & draft assembly for Agaricus bisporus (H97, lead homokaryon) is complete.

JGI_20090331 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.
