Candida and Yeast Genome Databases and OrthologID

The full Candida Genome Database can be found here:

Search the genome and view/download sequences.  Read the tutorials on Gene Ontology - which describes the complete biology of individual gene products in any organism...

Other strains also available:

  • Candida albicans WO-1
  • Candida dubliniensis CD36
  • Candida glabrata CBS138
  • Candida guilliermondii ATCC 6260
  • Candida lusitaniae ATCC 42720
  • Candida parapsilosis CDC 317
  • Candida tropicalis MYA-3404
  • Debaryomyces hansenii CBS767
  • Lodderomyces elongisporus NRLL YB-4239

The Saccharomyces Genome Database can be found here:

What I am interested in, is Orthologs... between different species.  Orthologs between the microbe and its host... .. and resources that enable one to compare two or more genomes... Genome Orthology?  I am still in Year 2 level biology (at the age of 40 and after 20+ years interest)... but I see potential in comparing the ontologies of genes in different genomes...

Isolation and characterization of human orthologs of yeast CCR4–NOT complex subunits

Orthology between genomes of Brachypodium, wheat and rice

OrthologID: automation of genome-scale ortholog identification within a parsimony framework
