The Debaryomyces singareniensis CBS 10405 genome sequence and gene models were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI) but were provided by John Wolters on Nov 24, 2021. This genome was sequened as part of the Y1000+ Project. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by John and is therefore not automatically updated. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into MycoCosm. The JGI Annotation Pipeline was used to add the functional annotation to this genome.

Debaryomyces singareniensis CBS 10405 is a Saccharomycotina budding yeast of the CUG-Ser1 clade. This yeast is a relative of the better studied Debaryomyces hansenii, but is an outgroup to the rest of the genus. High degrees of osmotolerance and diverse carbon source consumption make yeasts of this genus attractive targets for bioengineering for processing challenging substrates such as hydrolysates used in biorefineries.
