Draft genome sequence of Penicillium marneffei strain PM1

Eukaryot Cell. 2011 Dec;10(12):1740-1. doi: 10.1128/EC.05255-11.


Penicillium marneffei is the most important thermal dimorphic, pathogenic fungus endemic in China and Southeast Asia and is particularly important in HIV-positive patients. We report the 28,887,485-bp draft genome sequence of P. marneffei, which contains its complete mitochondrial genome, sexual cycle genes, a high diversity of Mp1p homologues, and polyketide synthase genes.
