- Development and characterization of a genetic linkage map of Cryptococcus neoformans var. neoformans using amplified fragment length polymorphisms and other markersA Forche
Department of Biology, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina 27708, USA
Fungal Genet Biol 31:189-203. 2000..This linkage map should provide a framework for the ongoing genome sequencing project and will be a useful tool for studying the genetics and pathogenicity of this important medical yeast...
- A system for studying genetic changes in Candida albicans during infectionA Forche
Department of Genetics, Cell Biology and Development, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN 55455, USA
Fungal Genet Biol 39:38-50. 2003..Our observations suggest that genetic changes such as mitotic recombination and gene conversion occur at a high enough frequency to be important in the transition of C. albicans from a commensal to a pathogenic organism...
- Genetic structure of typical and atypical populations of Candida albicans from AfricaA Forche
Department of Microbiology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina 27710, USA
Fungal Genet Biol 28:107-25. 1999..Phylogenetic analysis of partial sequences encoding the nuclear 26S rDNA demonstrated that all three populations belong to a single monophyletic group, which includes the type strain of C. albicans...
