Support for FungiDB

EuPathDB has received funding through the NIAID Bioinformatics Resource Centers program to expand informatics support for Ascomycota, Basidiomycota, Zygomycota, and Chytrid fungal species. FungiDB, which uses the same infrastructure and user interface as EuPathDB, contains sequence and annotation for over 70 species including many human pathogens from the Coccidiodes and Cryptococcus genera. The range of organisms available through FungiDB are informative to many NIAID-supported researchers based on their phylogenetic position and/or experimental utility as model organisms, with extensive genomic and phenotyping data providing insight into pathogenic species.
