Genome Sequences of Three Species of Hanseniaspora Isolated from Spontaneous Wine Fermentations

Genome Announc. 2016 Nov 17;4(6):e01287-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01287-16.


Members of the genus Hanseniaspora represent a significant proportion of the normal flora of grape berries and play a significant role in wine fermentation. Here, we present genome sequences for three species of Hanseniaspora, H. opuntiae, H. osmophila, and H. uvarum, which were isolated from spontaneous Chardonnay wine fermentation.
