Environmental factors can cause changes in the content of the fungal genome during evolution. In this study, a fungus used as a biocontrol agent, Trichoderma virens FT-333 (from a tropical marine climate) has been isolated. The genome (38.6 Mbp; GC content, 49.43%) has a total of 12 751 proteins. Gene ontology terms (cellular component and molecular function) and KEGG analyses demonstrated the importance of the secretion function in FT-333. Compared to the other Trichoderma species, copy number of genes related to defense and nutrient utilization was variable.
