Wow. The JGI is just pouring fungal genomes into their Mycocosm. I assume that this is part of the 1000 Fungal Genomes effort, but it is wildly far reaching and fast accruing.  Besides all of the species that have been targeted, they have apparently sequenced a species, Penicillium chrysogenum, hilariously 'by accident' as a contaminant. I could hardly imagine anything more fitting for this species, which is inexorably tied to Alexander Fleming's own 'accidental discovery' of penicillin.
