Project description

OPATHY (from Omics of PATHogenics Yeasts) is an innovative translational research training network that will

explore the potential of next-generation high-throughput technologies, including genomics, transcriptomics and

proteomics, to study the interactions of yeasts that cause disease to humans (e.g. Candida and Cryptococcus sp.)

with their host, and to develop new diagnostic tools to monitor yeast infections in the clinic.
