Fusarium genus

Go to Ensembl Fungi and answer the following questions:

  1. How many genomes of the genus Fusarium are in Ensembl Fungi?

  2. What is the accession ID of the Fusarium graminearum str. CS3005 INSDC assembly?

  3. How many genes have been annotated for F. graminearum str. CS3005?

  1. On the Ensembl Fungi homepage, click on View full list of all Ensembl Fungi species (you can find this under the coloured search block). Type Fusarium into the filter box in the top right-hand corner of the table.

    There are 75 Fusarium genomes in Ensembl Fungi. Many of them are multiple strains of the same species, or multiple assemblies of the same strain/species.

  2. There are several ways to do this. You can: search for F. graminearum str. CS3005 in the species list and find the accession ID under the Accession column; or click on the species name to go to the species information page and click on More information and statistics. The accession ID can be found in the Summary statistics panel on the right-hand side.

    The accession ID of the INSDC assembly is GCA_000599445.1.

  3. Go to the species information page of F. graminearum str. CS3005. and click on More information and statistics. You can find the Gene counts statistics on the right-hand panel.

    There are 13,355 coding genes in F. graminearum str. CS3005.
