Draft Genome Assemblies of Five Robust Yarrowia lipolytica Strains Exhibiting High Lipid Production, Pentose Sugar Utilization, and Sugar Alcohol Secretion from Undetoxified Lignocellulosic Biomass Hydrolysates

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2018 Sep 27;7(12):e01040-18. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01040-18. eCollection 2018 Sep.


Screening the genetic diversity of 45 Yarrowia lipolytica strains identified five candidates with unique metabolic capability and robustness in undetoxified switchgrass hydrolysates, including superior lipid production and efficient pentose sugar utilization. Here, we report the genome sequences of these strains to study their robustness and potential to produce fuels and chemicals.
