The JGI have issued a revision of the 8X genome assembly for Agaricus bisporus (H97, lead homokaryon). Jeremy Schmutz of the JGI has provided an assembly report/update JGIupdate_200908
This is an update to the initial draft release (2009 03) and incorporates two additional breaks based on the linkage mapping data provided by Anton Sonnenberg and colleagues. Many thanks to Anton and Jeremy Schmutz for their work on this.
This draft genome will now go into genome improvement, additional joins may yet be made to complete the chromosomes.
