Likely origin of lung fungus invading Pacific Northwest found by study

15 julio 2014

C. gattii, which likely originated in Brazil, is responsible for dozens of deaths in recent years since it was first found in 1999 on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, well outside its usual tropical habitats.
