Candida albicans is diploid and displays a primarily clonal mode of reproduction. There is, however, evidence for meiosis and the degree to which this occurs in nature is unknown. Although random mating would act to obscure clonal lineages, previous studies have demonstrated that collections of North American isolates display three major partitions with no evidence of geographic clustering. To better understand the extent of sexuality and its role in the phylogeny of the species, a reference… CONTINUE READING
