Today our paper was published in Scientific Reports, which was the result of the ongoing collaboration with the group of Charissa de Bekker at the University of Florida.
We sequenced and annotated five genomes of Ophiocoryceps species that can infect ants and modify their behavior. Comparative genomics and transcriptomics revealed novel candidate genes that may be involved in this behavior modification.
The genomes can be browsed interactively by clicking on Genome Portals in the menu bar.
