Cladophialophora yegresii was sequenced by the Broad Institute as part of the black yeast comparative genomics project. The genome and gene models of Cladophialophora yegresii were downloaded from NCBI on June 1, 2016. JGI tools were used to add functional annotations to the gene models. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by NCBI or the Broad Institute and is therefore not automatically updated. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm.

The black yeasts are a group of melanized Ascomycete fungi that include species adapted to grow in humans or in other hosts. Within the fungal kingdom, the black yeasts fall within the Eurotiomycetes, which include a wide group of human pathogens. Several black yeasts in the subclass Chaetothyriomycetidae and order Chaetothyriales, are among the most pathogenic fungi known to date and possess a potential to cause fatal brain infection in perfectly healthy individuals. Cladophialophora yegresii grows on the spines of living cactus. It is not pathogenic, but is closely related to C. carrionii, one of the main agents of chromoblastomycosis. It is in the Chaetothyriales order of dematiaceous fungi.
