Genetic repertoires of coding genes in C. albicans and C. dubliniensis. (A) Coding genes of C. albicans and C. dubliniensis were compared at protein sequence level by reciprocal BLASTP. 5802 orthologous gene pairs versus 399 genes specific for C. albicans as well as 49 specific for C. dubliniensis were identified. Numbers in brackets indicate species-specific genes also reported by Jackson et al. (B) 5404 orthologs were consistent with the data from Jackson et al., 166 pairs had to be manually curated out of the raw blast results based on gene family information and on gene synteny. In addition to the current number of orthologous gene pairs between both species, we defined 232 novel pairs. (C) Fraction of expressed genes for species-specific and orthologous coding genes.
