Draft Genome Sequence of Cryptococcus terricola JCM 24523, an Oleaginous Yeast Capable of Expressing Exogenous DNA

Genome Announc. 2016 Nov 3;4(6):e01238-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01238-16.


Cryptococcus terricola JCM 24523 has recently been identified as an oleaginous yeast capable of converting starch into fatty acids. This draft genome sequence provides a platform for elucidating its fatty acid production potential and supporting comparisons with other oleaginous species.
