Fungal Genome Sequencing
The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) has supported and currently supports a series of projects, led by the Broad Institute, aimed at sequencing the genomes of a number of fungi. These fungi were proposed in three individual proposals submitted to NHGRI over the course of three years, consisting of the following sets of organisms.
Whitepaper proposals can be viewed by clicking on the group headings.

For each genome, 10-fold whole genome shotgun sequence coverage from paired-end reads will be obtained from plasmids (90 percent) and fosmids (10 percent). These sequence reads will be used to create a genome assembly.
