Beauveria bassiana is a fungus that grows naturally in soils throughout the world and acts as a parasite infecting various insects, including silkworm, causing white muscardine disease. B. bassiana was discovered by Agostinio Bassi in 1835 from infected silkworms. The genome sequence of B. bassiana ARSEF 2860 was determined by Dr. Chengshu Wang [1] using NGS methods, by which a 33.7 Mb assembly and 10366 protein-coding genes were obtained [1]. We downloaded the genome data sets from the NCBI.
