Paracoccidioides genomes reveal divergence

Academic Matute
The fungus Paracoccidioides spp. is a prevalent human pathogen endemic to South America. The genus is composed of five species. In this report, we use 37 whole genome sequences to study the allocation of genetic variation in Paracoccidioides. We tested three genome-wide predictions of advanced speciation, namely, that all species should be reciprocally monophyletic, that species pairs should be highly differentiated along the whole genome, and that there should be low rates of interspecific gene...
