Host adaptation, avirulence and antivirulence genes of Candida glabrata
Microbial evolution and adaptation are driven by the acquisition of new genes, mutation of existing genes, but also the loss of genes which are detrimental in particular environments. In this project, we postulate that the fungal pathogen Candida glabrata has lost or significantly modified genes in comparison to related non-pathogenic species, allowing an adaptation to its specific host niches. We will identify such genes and will investigate their roles during host-pathogen interactions.
