"Microevolution in heterozygous diploid genomes of the fungal pathogen Candida albicans"

My talk will focus on understanding how​ heterozygous diploid genomes ​evolve and adapt during short evolutionary timescales, using the human fungal pathogen Candida albicans as a model system. 

I will discuss the spectrum of genomic and phenotypic ​differences arising both during in vitro passage and during in vivo infection of a mammalian host.
