Data from: Genome sequence of the chestnut blight fungus Cryphonectria parasitica EP155: A fundamental resource for an archetypical invasive plant pathogen

Metadata Updated: November 10, 2020

The ascomycete fungus Cryphonectria parasitica is the causal agent of chestnut blight disease. This deadly fungal pathogen was introduced into North America from Asia before the turn of the 20th century, quickly spreading throughout the natural range of the American chestnut tree. In the course of a single generation, chestnut blight destroyed billions of American chestnut trees in forests across North America, driving it almost to extinction. The genome assembly for C. parasitica EP155 (v. 2.0, available at contains 26 main genome scaffolds totaling 43.9 Mb, and was sequenced at the U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute. The information and documents contained within this Ag Data Commons dataset provide supplementary data about the EP155 genome assembly, including scaffold summaries, genetic maps, mitochondrial DNA, P450s, secondary metabolite clusters, vegetative incompatibility genes, and transposable elements. These data are freely available for research purposes.
