MARDy is a curated database of known resistance mechanisms and associated antifungal drugs that is managed by Fisher Lab members.
MARDy currently includes amino acid substitutions, tandem repeat gene sequences, and chromosome ploidy.
MARDy is the brain-child of Dr Joanna Rhodes and was developed in collaboration with Dr Anthony Nash (University of Oxford).
Our job here at Fisher Lab is to maintain the database, introducing new searchable (and BLASTable!) entries as they are discovered. This will aid researchers and clinicians to identify mechanisms of resistance in environmental or medically important fungal strains.
MARDy has its own twitter account, that can be used to keep up to date with novel entries and developmental updates.
Publication is under review and the website is available for use now! If you have any questions please contact us here on via the MARDy twitter account.
