>ltaylor at peptidarus.uwaterloo.caThere are a couple of reviews on C. albicans (Ann. Rev. Micro. 39:579 
and Microbiol. Rev. 54:226 ). These give a general overall view of
the biology, pathogenicity and more specifically the genetics of C. albicans.
For S. cerevisiae, the best info is in the CSH monograph series on S.
cerevisiae and Meth. Enz. Vol 194, Guide to Yeast Genetics and Mol. Biol.
Hope this is helpful.
