The purpose of this research was to search for evolutionarily conserved fungal sequences to test the hypothesis that fungi have a set of core genes that are not found in other organisms, as these genes may indicate what makes fungi different from other organisms. By comparing 6355 predicted or known yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) genes to the genomes of 13 other fungi using Standalone TBLASTN at an e-value <1E-5, a list of 3340 yeast genes was obtained with homologs present in at least 12 of… CONTINUE READING
