Comparative Genomics - Using Fungi as Models
Edited by Sunnerhagen, Per; Piskur, Jure
Fungal comparative genomics started in 2000 by the genome sequencing of several yeast species other
than the canonical Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Since then, over 30 fungal genome sequences have become
available. This set represents a total evolutionary divergence comparable to that between vertebrates and arthropods,
but also contains closely related genomes.
Hardcover 289 pp 39 illus., 14 in colour, ISBN 9783540314806
This volume describes how we can use this set of genomes to trace large and small-scale events in genome
evolution, to extract information about highly conserved and less conserved sequence elements, and to develop
novel methods in genomics that will have an impact on genomics at large.
Of interest to researchers, scientists.
