Comparative genomics reveals mobile pathogenicity chromosomes in Fusarium
Fusarium species are among the most important phytopathogenic and toxigenic fungi. To understand the molecular underpinnings of pathogenicity in the genus Fusarium, we compared the genomes of threeExpand

The genome sequence of the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa
Neurospora crassa is a central organism in the history of twentieth-century genetics, biochemistry and molecular biology. Here, we report a high-quality draft sequence of the N. crassa genome. TheExpand

Genomic sequence of the pathogenic and allergenic filamentous fungus Aspergillus fumigatus
Aspergillus fumigatus is exceptional among microorganisms in being both a primary and opportunistic pathogen as well as a major allergen. Its conidia production is prolific, and so human respiratoryExpand

Genome Sequence of Aedes aegypti, a Major Arbovirus Vector
We present a draft sequence of the genome of Aedes aegypti, the primary vector for yellow fever and dengue fever, which at ∼1376 million base pairs is about 5 times the size of the genome of theExpand

Lessons from the Genome Sequence of Neurospora crassa: Tracing the Path from Genomic Blueprint to Multicellular Organism
SUMMARY We present an analysis of over 1,100 of the ∼10,000 predicted proteins encoded by the genome sequence of the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa. Seven major areas of Neurospora genomics andExpand

Insights from the genome of the biotrophic fungal plant pathogen Ustilago maydis
Ustilago maydis is a ubiquitous pathogen of maize and a well-established model organism for the study of plant–microbe interactions. This basidiomycete fungus does not use aggressive virulenceExpand

Sequencing of Aspergillus nidulans and comparative analysis with A. fumigatus and A. oryzae
The aspergilli comprise a diverse group of filamentous fungi spanning over 200 million years of evolution. Here we report the genome sequence of the model organism Aspergillus nidulans, and aExpand

Human T cell epitopes of Mycobacterium tuberculosis are evolutionarily hyperconserved
Mycobacterium tuberculosis is an obligate human pathogen capable of persisting in individual hosts for decades. We sequenced the genomes of 21 strains representative of the global diversity and sixExpand
