Genomic evidence for mating abilities in the asexual pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus

  title={Genomic evidence for mating abilities in the asexual pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus},
  author={Stefanie P{\"o}ggeler},
  journal={Current Genetics},
The filamentous fungus Aspergillus fumigatus is one of the causes of invasive lung disease in immunocompromised individuals. It is classified as asexual because no direct observation of mating or meiosis has been reported. Sequencing of the complete genome by an international collaboration, including the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (UK) and The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR, USA), has made most of the genomic sequence information from A. fumigatus publicly available. By searching the… CONTINUE READING
