Abstract

The human fungal pathogen Candida albicans has many morphological forms. Recent advances in genomics and cell biology are providing an improved understanding of the molecular regulation of cell shape, and providing insights into the relationships between morphogenesis and virulence. This understanding may improve our ability to develop strategies to combat Candida infections.
