Topic: Comparative and functional genomics
Abstract: Cryptococcus neoformans is an opportunistic human pathogen of global importance. The two strains of C. neoformans serotype D JEC21 and B-3501A are highly related but markedly different in their pathogenicity. We report their genome sequences as an important step in the elucidation of the molecular basis for Cryptococcus virulence and for its difference with other fungal pathogens.
