Project 1: Comparative genomics of fungal pathogens


To understand how virulence towards humans evolves across Candida. Comparative genomics of fungal pathogens with a dual objective of: i) identifying regions of high diagnostic potential in fullysequenced fungi (to be used in WP6); ii) finding genomic determinants of pathogenicity of Candida species. Implement these procedures in the OPATHY pipeline (WP4).



Sequencing of strains provided by P2 and clinical partners using bioinformatics tools to compare newly-sequenced whole genome sequences.
