Genomic Analysis of Candida krusei
Candida krusei is an important fungal pathogen with an 80% fatality rate. Currently, the genomic sequence is not determined. MSI resources are being used to assemble and analyze the genomic features of a sequenced strain of C. krusei obtained from a clinical specimen at the University of Minnesota. MSI resources are used to assemble and analyze the genomic features of this organism. This information will be used to develop genetic tools to study the biology of this important pathogen.
