An Inky-cap mushroom genome

Francis Martin has written up a delightful summary pointing to our publication of the genome of Coprinopsis cinereus which appears in the early edition of PNAS and will grace the cover at the end of the month.  I encourage you to take a look at Francis’s post and the paper, available as Open Access from PNAS.  I’ll do my best to post a summary of the paper when I get a free moment.

For now I’ll leave you with a picture of this cute little mushroom fruting in the lab and a link to many more at Flickr.
