Nominate genomes for F1000 project

I posted over in the 1000 Fungal genomes blog, as well as a post by Francis Martin, about details for nominating your fungus for the F1000 project. You have to be able to supply DNA and RNA and justify the project under DOE/JGI mission, but we are looking for contributors to help fill in all the gaps in the diversity of sampled fungal genomes.

There might even be a way to use these projects to support mycology or genomics classes. For example one part of a class could work on isolation and growth of the fungi, obtaining RNA and DNA and sending this off to to the sequencing center. The rest of the class would be spent analyzing existing fungal genomes. In the subsequent year the nominated genome would likely be completed and the next year’s class could work on processing it.
