Abstract

The "asexual" human fungal pathogen Candida albicans has recently been engineered to be able to mate. A paper in the August 9, 2002 issue of Cell (Miller and Johnson, 2002) shows that mating competence is increased dramatically when mating partners are in a rare switch variant cell type that does not normally occur at body temperature.
