The Blumeria graminis genome has been completely re-annotated by members of the B. graminis community with the support of Ensembl Genomes. This curation effort has resulted in several improvements to the gene set including the addition of UTRs to gene models, correction of gene boundaries and exons, and the discovery of nearly 650 new genes.
