Draft Genome Assemblies of Xylose-Utilizing Candida tropicalis and Candida boidinii with Potential Application in Biochemical and Biofuel Production

Genome Announc. 2018 Feb 15;6(7):e01594-17. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01594-17.


Non-albicans Candida species are growing in prominence in industrial biotechnology due to their ability to utilize hemicellulose. Here, we present the draft genome sequences of an inhibitor-tolerant Candida tropicalis strain (Y6604) and Candida boidinii NCAIM Y01308T.
