Draft Genome Sequence of Sporidiobolus salmonicolor CBS 6832, a Red-Pigmented Basidiomycetous Yeast

Genome Announc. 2015 May 21;3(3):e00444-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.00444-15.


We report the genome sequencing and annotation of the basidiomycetous red-pigmented yeast Sporidiobolus salmonicolor strain CBS 6832. The current assembly contains 395 scaffolds, for a total size of about 20.5 Mb and a G+C content of ~61.3%. The genome annotation predicts 5,147 putative protein-coding genes.
