The genome sequence of four isolates from the family Lichtheimiaceae

Pathog Dis. 2015 Jul;73(5):ftv024. doi: 10.1093/femspd/ftv024. Epub 2015 Apr 9.


This study reports the release of draft genome sequences of two isolates of Lichtheimia corymbifera and two isolates of L. ramosa. Phylogenetic analyses indicate that the two L. corymbifera strains (CDC-B2541 and 008-049) are closely related to the previously sequenced L. corymbifera isolate (FSU 9682) while our two L. ramosa strains CDC-B5399 and CDC-B5792 cluster apart from them. These genome sequences will further the understanding of intraspecies and interspecies genetic variation within the Mucoraceae family of pathogenic fungi.

Keywords: Lichtheimia; Mucorales; Rhizopus; fungal genomics; fungal phylogeny; mucormycosis.
