  • Phlebopus portentosus can form fruiting bodies, both independently as a saprophyte and in association with plants as an ectomycorrhizal symbiont. It thus offers an excellent model from which to examine the genetic basis of lifestyle adaptations and transitions for mushrooms. This paper reports the genome sequence of a homokaryotic strain of P.┬áportentosus, PP33.
