Draft Genome Resources of Seven Strains of Tilletia horrida , Causal Agent of Kernel Smut of Rice Academic Article uri icon


  • Tilletia horrida, the causal agent of kernel smut of rice, is one of the most economically important diseases in rice. In recent years, increases in the incidence and severity of kernel smut have been reported across the rice-growing regions of the United States. In this study, we report the draft genome sequences of seven strains of T. horrida. Among the seven strains, four were assembled to 26 mb in length and the remaining three to 20 mb in length. These genome sequence datasets will be valuable resources for future studies on the population genomics and fungicide resistance of T. horrida and the host-pathogen interactions.
