Draft Genome Sequence of Capniomyces stellatus, the Obligate Gut Fungal Symbiont of Stonefly

Genome Announc. 2016 Aug 4;4(4):e00761-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00761-16.


Capniomyces stellatus is a host-specific endosymbiotic fungus, living in the hindgut of stoneflies (especially in Allocapnia). Here, we present the first draft genome sequence of the fungus, as well as the ab initio gene prediction and function analyses, which will facilitate the study and comparative analyses of insect-associated fungi.
