Cryptococcosis is a human infection caused mainly by two species of the Cryptococcus genus, Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii, whose populations contain several phylogenetically related haploid (VN/VG-types) and hybrid genotypes. Here, we report the whole-genome sequencing of a Nigerian C. neoformans VNII, Mat-α, strain with a rare multilocus-sequence-type (MLST) genotype (ST43).
