This chapter focuses on the species within the CTG clade. Several of the species (, , , , and ) have diploid genomes, so it is possible to compare the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) between the homologous chromosomes. Families of long terminal repeat (LTR) and non-LTR retrotransposons have been well characterized in . The precise number of agglutinin-like sequence (ALS) genes in the other species is likely to be overestimated, caused by difficulties in assembling the repeated regions. Species-specific amplifications have also occurred in the other species. The large-scale analysis of genomes confirmed that many of the multigene families described for are also present in the genomes of other pathogenic species. and are the only two species that generate true filaments, although is much less efficient. The change in the genetic code may have helped protect species from infection by RNA-based viruses. Comparative genomic tools for species are available from the Broad Institute, the Pasteur Institute, and University College Dublin. In conclusion, analysis of the vast array of genomic data available has already made, and is likely to continue to make, major contributions to our understanding of the biology of species.
