For your reading pleasure

Too much on my plate as of late, so I’m woefully behind on posting much on interesting papers or news.  Here’s a short list of links and papers that are worth a look though.

  • “Evolution of pathogenicity and sexual reproduction in eight Candida genomes” published (Nature)
  • NYT Science article sort of summarizing the good, bad, and ugly of fungi and human interactions
  • Attempts to save amphibians from chytridiomycosis “Riders of a Modern-Day Ark” (PLoS Biology)
  • Looks like Scott Baker with the JGI are in the process of resequencing several classical mutant strains of Phycomyces, Neurospora and Cochliobolus, Cryphonectria for sequence-based mapping of mutants (i.e. here and here and here).

One thought on “For your reading pleasure”

  1. Great recommendations. Just read the NYT article. A hearty good read, but too abrupt of an ending.

    Skimmed the C.albicans article. What is UP with L. elongisporus? Seriously? Mating and homothallic but lacking any MTLa information? How can that be? My lab mates are in awe and speculating wildly.
