The class mesomycetozoea: a heterogeneous group of microorganisms at the animal-fungal boundary.
When the enigmatic fish pathogen, the rosette agent, was first found to be closely related to the choanoflagellates, no one anticipated finding a new group of organisms. Subsequently, a new group ofExpand

Comparative genomic analyses of the human fungal pathogens Coccidioides and their relatives.
While most Ascomycetes tend to associate principally with plants, the dimorphic fungi Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii are primary pathogens of immunocompetent mammals, includingExpand

The Novel and Endemic Pathogen Hypotheses: Competing Explanations for the Origin of Emerging Infectious Diseases of Wildlife
Chytridiomycosis, caused by the fungal pathogen Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, is an emerging infectious disease implicated in declines of amphibian populations around the globe. An emergingExpand

Population structure and gene evolution in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The fully sequenced genomes of four species within the Saccharomyces sensu stricto complex provide a wealth of information for molecular-evolutionary inference. Yet virtually nothing is known aboutExpand

Development of multiple genetic markers for studies of genetic variation in arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi using AFLP™
Intraspecific and interspecific genetic variation was studied among arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. DNA was extracted from single spores and variation was analysed by AFLP (Amplified Fragment LengthExpand

Population genomic sequencing of Coccidioides fungi reveals recent hybridization and transposon control.
We have sequenced the genomes of 18 isolates of the closely related human pathogenic fungi Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii to more clearly elucidate population genomic structure,Expand

Human Mucopolysaccharidosis IIID: Clinical, Biochemical, Morpholgical and Immunohistochemical Characteristics
Mucopolysaccharidosis IIID (MPS IIID) is one of the rarest of the MPS-III syndromes. To date, the clinical manifestations of 10 patients have been reported, the deficient N-acetylglucosamineExpand

Molecular phylogeny of animal pathogen Lacazia loboi inferred from rDNA and DNA coding sequences.
Lacazia loboi is a geographically restricted, uncultivated fungal pathogen of humans and dolphins. Previous investigations using 18S small unit rDNA, chitin synthase 2 and gp43 DNA sequencesExpand

Broad Neutralization of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1) Elicited from Human Rhinoviruses That Display the HIV-1 gp41 ELDKWA Epitope
ABSTRACT In efforts to develop AIDS vaccine components, we generated combinatorial libraries of recombinant human rhinoviruses that display the well-conserved ELDKWA epitope of the membrane-proximalExpand
