CandidaDB is a server that contains a database dedicated to the analysis of the genome of the human fungal pathogen, Candida albicans.
Its purpose is to collate and integrate various aspects of the genomic information from C. albicans, which is currently responsible for the vast majority of life-threatening fungal infections in immuno-compromized individuals. CandidaDB provides an almost complete dataset of DNA and protein sequences derived from C. albicans strain SC5314, linked to the relevant annotations and functional assignments. It allows one to easily browse through these data and retrieve information, using various criteria (gene names, location, keywords, etc.).
Nucleotide sequence data for C. albicans were obtained from the Stanford Genome Technology Center website. Sequencing of C. albicans was accomplished with the support of the NIDR and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
CandidaDB is supplemented with information from C. albicans entries present in the EMBL/GenBank/DDBJ databanks, as well as observations either published in international journals or communicated directly to us by individual researchers.
