The Fungal Genome Initiative (FGI) is a partnership between the Broad Institute and the wider fungal research community, with the selection of target genomes being governed by a steering committee of fungal scientists. Organisms are selected for sequencing as part of a cohesive strategy that considers not only the value of data from each organism given their role in basic research, health, agriculture, and industry, but also their value in comparative genomics.

FGI produces and analyzes sequence data from fungal organisms that are important to medicine, agriculture and industry. Over 25 fungi have been sequenced or are being sequenced, including human and plant pathogens as well as fungi that serve as basic models for molecular and cellular biology.
JGI Fungal Genomics Program aims to scale up sequencing and analysis of fungal genomes to explore the diversity of fungi in DOE mission areas and to develop the Genomic Encyclopedia of Fungi in the areas of:Plant Feedstock Health;Biorefinery;Fungal Diversity.
The Genomes On Line Database (GOLD) is a comprehensive resource for centralized monitoring of genome and metagenome projects worldwide. Both complete and ongoing projects, along with their associated metadata, can be accessed in GOLD through precomputed tables and a search page.
The FCGP was developed to facilitate the realization of such opportunities. Currently, the genomes of four Fusarium species, including F. graminearum (two strains), F. oxysporum, F. verticillioides, and F. solani, have been published (Coleman et al., 2009; Cuomo et al., 2007; Ma et al., 2010) with more species and isolates currently being sequenced or annotated. The first three species were sequenced by the Broad Institute, while the Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute sequenced F. solani.
