C Anderson, SD Harris, EN moriyama (University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska)Members of the Kingdom Fungi surround us on a largely microscopic scale, they impact our lives on all levels: health, food, value of property (e.g., mold and wood rot). Currently there are hundreds of complete fungal genomes available from various genome projects (i.e., JGI, Broad Institute, SGD, AspGD, etc…). However, this information is not centralized or easy to use for systematic analysis. To address this situation, we have developed the "Fungal Genome Collection (FGC)". The FGC provides a central repository for fungal genomes of all genera. Comparative genomics information is available for all genomes by way of blast similarity search results against the NCBI nonredundant database, against the UniProt/Swissprot database, and also between all fungal genomes. Blast results are organized in such a way that searching for proteins unique to specific fungal genomes, those unique to the fungal kingdom, or those shared with metazoans or plants, can be done easily. Sequence data and analysis results can be downloaded in various formats.
