MycoCosm portal: gearing up for 1000 fungal genomes

Nucleic Acids Res. 2014 Jan;42(Database issue):D699-704. doi: 10.1093/nar/gkt1183. Epub 2013 Dec 1.


MycoCosm is a fungal genomics portal (, developed by the US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute to support integration, analysis and dissemination of fungal genome sequences and other 'omics' data by providing interactive web-based tools. MycoCosm also promotes and facilitates user community participation through the nomination of new species of fungi for sequencing, and the annotation and analysis of resulting data. By efficiently filling gaps in the Fungal Tree of Life, MycoCosm will help address important problems associated with energy and the environment, taking advantage of growing fungal genomics resources.
