Discovery of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the uncharacterized genome of the ascomycete Ophiognomonia clavigignenti-juglandacearum from 454 sequence data.

The benefits from recent improvement in sequencing technologies, such as the Roche GS FLX (454) pyrosequencing, may be even more valuable in non-model organisms, such as many plant pathogenic fungi of economic importance. One application of this new sequencing technology is the rapid generation of genomic information to identify putative single-nucleotide… CONTINUE READING
