Let’s make a difference…

Rice blast disease is caused by a fungus called Magnaporthe oryzae.ย  M. oryzae is found in all rice growing regions and blast infection can lead to severe crop losses. We are interested in collecting whole genome/transcriptome sequences of rice blast fungi from different areas of the world, and share this information openly and freely through this website.

The data we collect and share include short reads and long range genomic sequences, RNA-seq data from field-pathogenomic studies, and results from single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analyses. Anyone can download the data shared on this website and analyse them according to oneโ€™s own analysis pipelines and strategies. The results can be posted on Figshare and link from this website, or published independently.
