The genomes of a few other edible or medical mushrooms were also sequenced, for example, Volvariella volvacea , Agaricus bisporus , Flammulina velutipes , Antrodia cinnamomea , and Wolfiporia cocos .
latifolia genome is of a similar size with several other species in the order Polyporales including Trametes versicolor (44.79 Mb), Wolfiporia cocos (50.48 Mb) , Phanerochaete carnosa (46.29 Mb) , and Polyporus brumalis (45.72 Mb) (http://genome.jgi.doe.gov/Polbr1/Polbr1.info.html), but larger than the sizes of Ganoderma sp.
latifolia to Fomitopsis pinicola, Wolfiporia cocos, Postia placenta, and Antrodia sinuosa, all of which are from the Polyporaceae family.
latifolia have fewer genes encoding for the initial lignin degradation (auxiliary activities; formerly FOLymes) compared to those in the closest known brown-rot basidiomycetes such as Fomitopsis pinicola, Antrodia sinuosa, Fibroporia radiculosa, Wolfiporia cocos, and Postia placenta in Polyporales.

The brown-rot fungi Wolfiporia cocos ATCC 62778 and Gloeophyllum trabeum ATCC 11539 and white-rot fungi Trametes versicolor DEBIQ and Ganoderma australe A464, cultivated under conditions similar to those of the native strains, were used as references in the lignocellulolytic enzyme detection assays.
