Sequencing the whole genome of an organism is invaluable for its comprehensive molecular characterization and has been drastically facilitated by the advent of high-throughput sequencing techniques. Especially in clinical microbiology the impact of sequenced strains increases as resistance and virulence markers can easily be detected. Here, we describe a combined approach for sequencing a fungal genome and transcriptome from initial nucleic acid isolation through the generation of ready-to-load DNA libraries for the Illumina platform and the final step of genome assembly with subsequent gene annotation.
