A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

About

Alessia BUSCAINO – University of Kent-UK – School of Biosciences  Kent Fungal Group

Fungal pathogens are a threat to human health because of their ability to thrive in different environmental niches, together with the rising occurrence of anti-fungal drugs resistance. Candida albicans is the most common human fungal pathogen. It colonises almost every organ in the human body where it causes life-threating infections. The ability to survive in different environments is partly due its remarkable genomic plasticity that is promoted by environmental stresses. Mechanisms underlying C. albicans genome plasticity are unknown but it is clear that DNA repeats play an essential role in this process. In many organisms, genome stability at DNA repeats is ensured by the assembly of heterochromatin structures inhibitory to recombination. Surprisingly, the chromatin state of C. albicans DNA repeats  and its function in regulating genome plasticity is still largerly unknown. Our research focuses on chromatin structure and function in Candida albicans. We aim to determine the chromatin state associated with C. albicans DNA repeats and to understand whether and how chromatin regulates genome plasticity in this important human fungal pathogen.
