Candida albicans genome sequence: a platform for genomics in the absence of genetics

Genome Biol. 2004;5(7):230. doi: 10.1186/gb-2004-5-7-230. Epub 2004 Jun 11.


Publication of the complete diploid genome sequence of the yeast Candida albicans will accelerate research into the pathogenesis of Candida infections. Comparative genomic analysis highlights genes that may contribute to C. albicans survival and its fitness as a human commensal and pathogen.
