Yeasts provide a powerful model system for comparative genomics research. The availability of multiple complete genome sequences from different fungal groups--currently 18 hemiascomycetes, 8 euascomycetes and 4 basidiomycetes--enables us to gain a broad perspective on genome evolution. The sequenced genomes span a continuum of divergence levels ranging from multiple individuals within a species to species pairs with low levels of protein sequence identity and no conservation of gene order.
