Typical freshwater bacteria: an analysis of available 16S rRNA gene sequences from plankton of lakes and rivers
TLDR
It is shown that rivers and lakes have a specific planktonic bacterial community distinct from bacteria in neighboring environments such as soil and sediments, and it is pointed out that these planktonics bacteria are distributed in diverse fresh- water ecosystems around the world.
A rare genotype of Cryptococcus gattii caused the cryptococcosis outbreak on Vancouver Island (British Columbia, Canada).
TLDR
The emergence of this usually tropical pathogen on Vancouver Island highlights the changing distribution of this genotype and emphasizes the importance of an ongoing collaborative effort to monitor the global epidemiology of this yeast.
Consensus multi-locus sequence typing scheme for Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii.
This communication describes the consensus multi-locus typing scheme established by the Cryptococcal Working Group I (Genotyping of Cryptococcus neoformans and C. gattii) of the International Society
First hospital outbreak of the globally emerging Candida auris in a European hospital
TLDR
This ongoing outbreak with genotypically closely related C. auris highlights the importance of appropriate species identification and rapid detection of cases in order to contain hospital acquired transmission.
New Clonal Strain of Candida auris, Delhi, India
TLDR
A new clonal strain of Candida auris is an emerging etiologic agent of fungemia in Delhi, India and was resistant to fluconazole and genotypically distinct from isolates from South Korea and Japan, as revealed by M13 and amplified fragment length polymorphism typing.
Multidrug-resistant endemic clonal strain of Candida auris in India
TLDR
The present study demonstrates that C. auris is a potential emerging pathogen that can cause a wide spectrum of human mycotic infections.
