Genome Assembly and Transcriptome of Colletotrichum sublineola CsGL1, a New Resource to Study Anthracnose Disease in Sorghum

Mol Plant Microbe Interact. 2021 Oct;34(10):1209-1211. doi: 10.1094/MPMI-04-21-0094-A. Epub 2021 Oct 18.


Colletotrichum species are globally distributed and well known as members of a destructive phytopathogenic genus, causing the anthracnose disease in a wide variety of crops and fruits. Colletotrichum sublineola is the causal agent of the anthracnose disease in sorghum, causing losses of up to 50% in yield. Here, we used PacBio sequencing combined with RNA-seq to generate a chromosome-level assembly and annotation of the Colletotrichum sublineola strain CsGL1.[Formula: see text] Copyright © 2021 The Author(s).
