Genetically similar fungi cause severe infections in different hospitals

A group of researchers from Brazil, Denmark, Italy, and Spain analyzed 884 samples of fungi of the genus Candida collected from 16 hospitals and found a significant number of clusters in more than one hospital. Clusters are groups of fungal isolates with identical DNA sequences. The discovery may point to the presence of more virulent and drug-resistant varieties.
