The Genome and Development-Dependent Transcriptomes of Pyronema confluens: A Window into Fungal Evolution

Figure 3

Intron content of protein-coding genes from P. confluens and 10 other filamentous fungi.

Putative orthologs to P. confluens genes were identified by reciprocal BLASTP analysis, and 747 genes with orthologs across all fungal genomes used were analyzed for intron content (analysis of CDSs only, because UTRs are not annotated in all cases). Blue bars give the percentage of genes without introns (left y-axis), red diamonds give the average number of genes per kb (right y-axis). Data from genome projects for the following species were used for the analysis: Bd, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (; Ro, Rhizopus oryzae [207]; Pc, Pyronema confluens (this study); Tm, Tuber melanosporum [9]; An, Aspergillus nidulans [174]; Pn, Phaesphaeria nodorum [179]; Nc, Neurospora crassa [178]; Sm, Sordaria macrospora [22]; Ss, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum [182]; Pp, Postia placenta [208]; Cc, Coprinopsis cinerea [209].
