Progress in the fight against harmful fungi

One of the world’s largest gene libraries for the Candida glabrata yeast, which is harmful to humans, has been developed by researchers. Molecular analysis of the Candida glabrata fungus mutations led to the discovery of 28 new genes that are partly responsible for the yeast’s tolerance of common drugs. Infectious diseases caused by fungi, viruses, bacteria and parasites represent the world’s number one cause of death. A few dozen types of harmful fungi claim more than 1.5 million human lives every year.

Progress in the fight against harmful fungi

A group of researchers at the Max F. Perutz Laboratories has created one of the three world’s largest gene libraries for the Candida glabrata yeast, which is harmful to humans. Molecular analysis of the Candida glabrata fungus mutations led to the discovery of 28 new genes that are partly responsible for the yeast’s tolerance of common drugs.
