The genome sequence of Candida tropicalis MYA3404 has not been determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but was downloaded from NCBI on July 20, 2020. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by NCBI and is therefore not automatically updated. Gene models were provided by Krishnendu Guin and Kaustuv Sanyal. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins.

Candida tropicalis is a species of yeast in the genus Candida. It is a common pathogen in neutropenic hosts, in whom it may spread through the bloodstream to peripheral organs. In tropical countries, C. tropicalis is one of the most common colonizer and pathogen causing human disease, especially found on human skin, in the gastrointestinal tract and also in female genitourinary tract. It can be transmitted between health-care workers and patients, especially in environments such as hospitals.
