MAMA Real-Time PCR Assay Panel for Genotyping Cyrptococcus gattii
Researchers at TGen and Northern Arizona University (NAU) have developed methods for genotyping Cryptococcus gattii using a mismatch amplification mutation assay (MAMA) real-time PCR assay panel. This assay panel provides a rapid method for genotyping of C. gattii molecular types VGI-VGIV and the dominate North American VGII molecular subtypes VGIIa-c...

Repurposed Drugs for the Treatment of Fungal Infections Caused by Coccidioides
Researchers at TGen and Northern Arizona University (NAU) have developed an effective treatment for fungal infections caused by Coccidioides including the Valley Fever-causing species: Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii in humans and companion animals (particularly canines). Repurposed drugs originally developed to inhibit hormone uptake...
