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).
