Deadly human pathogen Cryptococcus fully sequenced

18.4.2014: Now researchers have sequenced the entire genome and all the RNA products of the most important pathogenic lineage of Cryptococcus neoformans, a strain called H99. The results, which appear April 17 in PLOS Genetics, also describe a number of genetic changes that can occur after laboratory handling of H99 that make it more susceptible to stress, hamper its ability to sexually reproduce and render it less virulent. The study provides a playbook that can be used to understand how the pathogen causes disease and develop methods to keep it from...
