Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The aim of this chapter is to analyze Aspergillus fumigatus virulence in light of recent developments in genomics and our growing understanding of the complexity of the host-pathogen interaction. Readers interested in comprehensive summaries describing putative virulence determinants of A. fumigatus are directed to several excellent recent reviews (Latge, 1999; Rementeria et al., 2005; Brakhage, 2005).
