Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Goals for this research project are to determine how the functional diversity of the yeast subphylum is encoded, and to reconstruct the history of yeasts to elucidate the tempo and mode of functional diversification. The impact of this work will be to integrate discoveries within broadly disseminated databases (e.g. GenBank, Tree of Life Web Project), develop a new internet database that synthesizes phylogeny with function and genome content, and to focus on poorly sampled yeast clades and metagenomic analyses of natural yeast habitats.
