The genome sequence and gene prediction of Aureobasidium pullulans ATCC 62921 have not been determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from CSFG on July 31, 2022. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by NCBI and is therefore not automatically updated. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins.

Aureobasidium pullulans is a mesophile, with optimal growth at 22 °C (1). It can produce a variety of enzymes used in the degradation/modification of lignocellulolytic substrates and the production of the polysaccharide pullulan (2). The sequence genome of A. pullulans will provide new enzymes with application in lignocellulolytic processes.
