Draft Genome Sequence of an Antarctic Isolate of the Black Yeast Fungus Exophiala mesophila

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 May 9;8(19):e00142-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00142-19.


A 30.43-Mb draft genome sequence with 10,355 predicted protein-coding genes was produced for the ascomycete fungus Exophiala mesophila strain CCFEE 6314, a black yeast isolated from Antarctic cryptoendolithic communities. The sequence will be of importance for identifying differences among extremophiles and mesophiles and cataloguing the global population diversity of this organism.
