Genomic Analysis of the Basal Lineage Fungus Rhizopus oryzae Reveals a Whole-Genome Duplication
TLDR
The order and genomic arrangement of the duplicated gene pairs and their common phylogenetic origin provide evidence for an ancestral whole-genome duplication (WGD) event that resulted in the expansion of multiple gene families related to cell growth and signal transduction, as well as secreted aspartic protease and subtilase protein families, which are known fungal virulence factors.
The DIRS1 group of retrotransposons.
TLDR
The identification of several new DIRS1-like retrotransposons, including elements from nematodes, sea urchins, fish, and amphibia are reported, and evidence for the existence of DIRs1- like sequences in the human genome is presented.
Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae from Recent Outbreaks of Kiwifruit Bacterial Canker Belong to Different Clones That Originated in China
TLDR
The analyses of the core genome SNPs and the ICEs support the hypothesis of an independent Chinese origin for both the Italian and the New Zealand outbreaks and suggest the Chilean strains also originate from China.
Comparative genomics of the fungal pathogens Candida dubliniensis and Candida albicans.
TLDR
The results suggest that the recent evolutionary histories of C. albicans and C. dubliniensis are quite different, with the former having lost genomic capacity and key pathogenic functions, and the latter being a significantly less virulent and less versatile pathogen.
The distribution and evolutionary history of the PRP8 intein
TLDR
It is suggested that eukaryote inteins undergo horizontal transfer and it is possible that horizontal transfer has occurred between the euascomycetes and members of the basidiomycete genus Cryptococcus.
A new group of tyrosine recombinase-encoding retrotransposons.
TLDR
The Ngaro and DIRS groups of YR retrotransposons contain elements with an astonishing diversity in structures, with variations in the nature of the associated repeat sequences and in the arrangement and complement of coding regions.
Multiple LTR-retrotransposon families in the asexual yeast Candida albicans.
TLDR
A region rich in retrotransposon fragments, that lies adjacent to many of the CARE-2/Rel-2 sub-telomeric repeats, and which appears to have arisen through multiple rounds of duplication and recombination, is described.
The diversity of retrotransposons in the yeast Cryptococcus neoformans
TLDR
An analysis of the retrotransposons in the medically important basidiomycetous fungus Cryptococcus neoformans suggests that elimination of Retrotransposon families is faster in C. neoforman than in Candida albicans, but perhaps not as rapid as in S. cerevisiae or Sz.
