Development of polymorphic microsatellite markers for Cryptococcus neoformans
MetadataShow full item record
Cryptococcus neoformans is a haploid basidiomycetous yeast that causes life-threatening infections in patients with and without impaired immune function. Present typing systems for C. neoformans are limited by either poor standardization or high cost. We present eleven microsatellite loci that were developed from the published genomes of C. neoformans var. neoformans, and are applicable to the varieties and hybrids within C. neoformans. © 2008 The Authors.
