Improved Reference Genome Sequence of Coccidioides immitis Strain WA_211, Isolated in Washington State

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 Aug 15;8(33):e00149-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00149-19.


Coccidioides fungi are widely distributed in the American continents, with an expanding western range documented by a recently discovered cryptic population of Coccidioides immitis in Washington State. The assembled and annotated reference genome sequence of the soil-derived C. immitis strain WA_211 will support population and functional genomics studies.
