Scientists Isolate and Perform Next-generation DNA-sequencing of Genome of the Fungus Causing White-nose Syndrome

Year: 2016

Forest Service scientists isolated and performed next-generation DNA-sequencing of the entire genome of the white-nose syndrome fungus discovered in Washington state and compared it to other strains found in eastern North America and Europe. This work was part of a collaborative effort to fight the fungus, a devastating invasive disease that is causing widespread ecosystem disruptions and pushing multiple bat species toward extinction.
