Mucor circinelloides genome update

I recently heard through the grapevine that the Mucor ircinelloides genome 4X assembly was completed by JGI and a BLAST server is available if you contact the authors. Mucorales (previously Zygomycota which is not monophyletic) includes previously sequenced Rhizopus oryzae and Phycomyces blakesleeanus which we’ve blogged about before.
