The Magnaporthe oryzae genome sequence, assembly, and annotation displayed in Map Viewer (build 3.1) is based on the M. oryzae strain 70-15 genome (release 5.0) provided by the Broad Institute. The Broad Institute, in collaboration with the Fungal Genomics Laboratory (FGL) at North Carolina State University (NCSU) and other members of the International Rice Blast Genome Consortium, sequenced the M. oryzae genome at >7X coverage using whole genome shotgun (WGS) sequencing. The high-quality draft genome assembly incorporates the results of an automated gap-filling process. The genome assembly has been annotated using automated gene prediction tools.

M. oryzae is a haploid fungus. Its genome is approximately 40 Mb, organized in seven chromosomes.

The NCBI Map Viewer provides graphical displays of features on the M. oryzae genome sequence assembly. Map features that can be seen along the sequence include NCBI contigs and their component WGS sequences, genes, RefSeq transcripts, ESTs, UniGene clusters, GenBank genomic sequences, and genetic markers. You can find features of interest by submitting a query against the whole genome or against one chromosome at a time. Results are indicated both graphically, as tick marks on the ideogram, and in a tabular format. The results table includes links to a chromosome graphical view, where the feature can be seen in the context of additional data. You can also browse a chromosome by clicking on a chromosome link in the ideogram above. Use the "Maps & Options" window, available on individual chromosome displays, to configure your display. Extensive documentation and tutorials are provided to describe the resource.

The filamentous fungus M. oryzae (anamorph Pyricularia grisea) is the causal agent of rice blast disease. This worldwide rice disease is a major threat, destroying enough rice annually to feed more than 60 million people. M. oryzae is an ideal model organism for studying plant pathogenic fungi and host-parasite interactions.
