The genome and gene models of Meyerozyma guilliermondii were downloaded from NCBI on June 1, 2016. JGI tools were used to add functional annotations to the gene models.  Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by Genbank or the authors and is therefore not automatically updated. In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the Joint Genome Institute, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm.

Meyerozyma  (Pichia) guilliermondii (anamorph = Candida guilliermondii) is a species of yeast which has been isolated from numerous human infections, mostly of cutaneous origin from immunesuppresed patients . C. guilliermondii has also been isolated from normal skin and in sea water, faeces of animals, fig wasps, buttermilk, leather, fish and beer.
Candida guilliermondii colonies are flat, moist, smooth, and cream to yellow in color on Sabouraud dextrose agar. It does not grow on the surface when inoculated into Sabouraud broth. On cornmeal tween 80 agar and at 25°C after 72 h, it produces clusters of small blastospores along the pseudohyphae and particularly at septal points. Pseudohyphae are short and few in number.
