    Fungal (Aspergillus nidulans, Aspergillus flavus and Neurospora crassa) cDNA Sequencing

    To date, we have isolated over 14,900 cDNA clones from a mixed vegatative and 24 hour asexual development culture of Aspergillus nidulans Strain FGSC A26(biA1) constructed in lambda zap by Dr. Rodolfo Aramayo, at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas and over 6000 cDNA clones from an evening Neurospora crassa cDNA library and over 7000 cDNA clones from a morning cDNA library, constructed by Jay Dunlap at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire
    We recently also have sequenced ca. 1400 cDNA clones from a wild type, Aspergillus flavus vegetative mycelia cDNA library created by Nancy Keller at Department of Plant Pathology, Texas A&M University who recently moved to the Department of Plant Pathology, University of Wisconson-Madison
    We recently also have sequenced ca. 1500 cDNA clones from a wild type, Neurospora crassa perathecia (fruting bodies) from a cDNA library created by Mary Ann Nelson at Department of Biology, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico from RNA isolated five days after fertilization.

    Obtaining the sequence data via ftp

    All of the cDNA sequence data we have obtained to date is available from our ftp site directly, by anonymous ftp to (logon as anonymous with password your e-mail address), cd to /pub/asper or /pub/nc_evening or /pub/nc_morning or /pub/nc_combined and get either the ascii data file called asper_est_with_anno.fa or asper_est_wo_anno.fa, or nc_evening_est_with_anno.fa or nc_evening_est_wo_anno.fa or nc_morning_est_with_anno.fa or nc_morning_est_wo_anno.fa or nc_all_est_wo_anno.fa files contains all the EST's sequenced to date concatenated into a flat file either with or without annotation, respectively.

    Clone Availability

    At the present time, many of our cDNA clones are available through the Fungal Genetics Stock Center. Since not all the clones have been deposited at the FGSC yet, if you cannot find the clone you are interested in there, please contact us directly and we will make it available to you.
