As a Satellite of the CBS Spring Symposium Week, a workshop Genomics of Neglected Pathogens was organised at the CBS-KNAW Fungal Biodiversity Centre on 20-21 April, 2015. With close to seventy participants, human pathogens and opportunists like Coccidioides, Sporothrix, black yeasts, and other significant but frequently overlooked fungi were put in the spotlight. Genomes of several opportunists often with fascinating natural ecologies have recently become available or will be sequenced in near future. Joint initiatives were started as outcome of the workshop to analyse these data. A selection of papers from these initiatives has been agreed upon to be published in journals like Studies in Mycology, PLoS Genetics and others.
