Candida albicans belongs to the order Saccharomycetales in the phylum Ascomycota. A normal inhabitant of mucosal membranes in human, it is also a commonly encountered pathogen causing infections of both skin and mucosa. While such infections are usually local and easily treated in immunocompetent individuals, they can be systemic and life-threatening in immunocompromised persons. C. albicans is diploid and exhibits considerable natural heterozygosity. It is also dimorphic with a unicellular (yeast) form and a multicellular (hyphal) form that is associated with pathogenicity.

The genome sequence of strain SC5314 was published in 2004. Most genes do not contain introns. The codon CUG is translated as serine rather than leucine.
