    sRNAs as possible regulators of retrotransposon activity in Cryptococcus gattii VGII

    The absence of Argonaute genes in the fungal pathogen Cryptococcus gattii R265 and other VGII strains indicates that yeasts of this genotype cannot have a functional RNAi pathway, an evolutionarily conserved gene...
