Analysis of intron gain and loss in Candida species. (A) 247 introns are conserved in four Candida species. We used S. cerevisiae and other species as outgroups to try to identify introns that were lost or gained in specific lineages. Losses are indicated in red and gains in green. Dh: D. hansenii; Cp: C. parapsilosis, Cd: C. dubliniensis, Ca: C. albicans. (B) Example of an intron gain in the C. parapsilosis ORF, Cpar2_502430. This intron is not present in any of the other four species.
