Draft Genome Sequence of the Oleaginous Yeast Cryptococcus curvatus ATCC 20509

Genome Announc. 2016 Nov 3;4(6):e01235-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01235-16.


Cryptococcus curvatus ATCC 20509 is a commonly used nonmodel oleaginous yeast capable of converting a variety of carbon sources into fatty acids. Here, we present the draft genome sequence of this popular organism to provide a means for more in-depth studies of its fatty acid production potential.
