Agaricus bisporus Genome Sequencing: Latest news from the JGI (September 2008)
The three Agaricus bisporus var. bisporus H97 sequencing libraries (3kb, 6-8kb & fosmids) have recently passed QC. H97 will now be scheduled for the ~4X checkpoint sequencing & assembly. The estimated time frame for the availability of the assembly from the 4X dataset is between Jan-Mar 2009.
Additionally, titration runs on three 454 EST libraries for Agaricus bisporus U1 are completed. All three samples passed QC and JGI will proceed with bulk runs.
