Summary of "New high-quality draft genome of the brown rot fungal pathogen Monilinia fructicola."

Brown rot is a worldwide fungal disease of stone and pome fruit that is caused by several Monilinia species. Among these, Monilinia fructicola can cause severe preharvest and postharvest losses, especially for stone fruit. Here, we present a high-quality draft genome assembly of M. fructicola Mfrc123 strain obtained using both Illumina and PacBio sequencing technologies. The genome assembly comprised 20 scaffolds, including 29 telomere sequences at both ends of 10 scaffolds, and at a single end of nine scaffolds. The total length was 44.05 Mb, with a scaffold N50 of 2,592 Kb. Annotation of the M. fructicola assembly identified a total of 12,118 genes and 13,749 proteins that were functionally annotated. This newly generated reference genome is expected to significantly contribute to comparative analysis of genome biology and evolution within Monilinia species.
