New methods have accelerated the pace of DNA sequencing for comparative genomics and genetics of fungi. High throughput genome sequencing enables comparative analysis of multiple strains of the same species and mutagenized strain lineages with interesting phenotypes. With their compact genomes, species from the genera Aspergillus and Penicillium are ideal for these multi-strain genome analyses that connect genotypes with phenotypes of interest to fungal biology and biotechnology read more ...
