The Leucosporidiella creatinivora genome was sequenced as part of the 1000 Fungal Genomes Project.

Leucosporidiella is a genus of fungi found in the family Leucosporidiaceae (Pucciniomycotina). Leucosporidiella creatinivora (Syn=Rhodotorula creatinivora) was originally isolated from permafrost soil in Siberia. It shows a yeast like growth with ellipsoid to ovoid cells with predominantly polar budding. The cultures are cream colored and butyrous or mucoid. Red, pink or orange pigments are not synthesized.
