Genome sequence of Trichosporon cutaneum ACCC 20271: An oleaginous yeast with excellent lignocellulose derived inhibitor tolerance

J Biotechnol. 2016 Jun 20;228:50-51. doi: 10.1016/j.jbiotec.2016.04.043. Epub 2016 Apr 27.


Oleaginous yeast Trichosporon cutaneum demonstrated excellent lipid accumulation performance and inhibitor tolerance derived from lignocellulose pretreatment. Here we firstly report a 30.45Mb assembly genome of T. cutaneum ACCC 20271 for understanding the microbial lipid biosynthesis and mechanism of inhibitor tolerance and degradation.

Keywords: Genome sequence; Inhibitor; Lignocellulose; Microbial lipid; Trichosporon cutaneum ACCC 20271.
