DNA replication, together with repair mechanisms and cell cycle control, are the most important cellular processes necessary to maintain correct transfer of genetic information to the progeny. These processes are well conserved throughout the Eukarya, and the genes that are involved provide essential information for understanding the life cycle of an organism. We used computational tools for data mining of genes involved in these processes in the pathogenic fungus Paracoccidiodes brasiliensis… Expand
Overview and perspectives the transcriptome of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis.
TLDR
Computer analysis using the tools of bioinformatics revealed several aspects from the transcriptome of this pathogen such as: general and differential metabolism in mycelium and yeast cells; cell cycle, DNA replication, repair and recombination; RNA biogenesis apparatus; translation and protein fate machineries.

Overview and perspectives on the transcriptome of Paracoccidioides
TLDR
Computer analysis using the tools of bioinformatics revealed some specific features considered relevant for the understan-ding of basic and applied knowledge of P. brasiliensis such as general and diffe-rential metabolism in mycelium and yeast cells. Expand
pH effect on strain-specific transcriptomes of the take-all fungus
TLDR
Differences in metabolic pathway expression between strains at different pH might buffer the effect of field or soil variation in wheat fields, and explain the success of the pathogen. Expand
