The Candida Genome Database: facilitating research on Candida albicans molecular biology.

Author information

  • 1Department of Genetics, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA 94305-5120, USA.


The Candida Genome Database (CGD; is a resource for information about the Candida albicans genomic sequence and the molecular biology of its encoded gene products. CGD collects and organizes data from the biological literature concerning C. albicans, and provides tools for viewing, searching, analysing, and downloading these data. CGD also serves as an organizing centre for the C. albicans research community, providing a gene-name registry, contact information, and research community news. This article describes the information contained in CGD and how to access it, either from the perspective of a bench scientist interested in the function of one or a few genes, or from the perspective of a biologist or bioinformatician interpreting large-scale functional genomic datasets.
