Coccidioides fungi are widely distributed in the American continents, with an expanding western range documented by a recently discovered cryptic population of Coccidioides immitis in Washington State. The assembled and annotated reference genome sequence of the soil-derived C. immitis strain WA_211 will support population and functional genomics studies.
