One of the most important pathogens for human health, Scedosporium aurantiacum, has a new enemy: an Australian bioinformatic and medical collaboration. Alexie helped ANU researchers Asa PĂ©rez-Bercoff, Gavin Huttley, Westmead scientists Marc Ramsperger and Wieland Mayer and others to sequence and annotate (i.e. decypher) the genome of this pathogen. Using our new tools PASA2 and Trinity RNASeq, this was one of the few times that RNAseq data was used to undertake fungal genome prediction, something that is now standard in other eukaryotes.
