The genome sequence and gene predictions of Pseudozyma hubeiensis were not determined by the JGI, but were downloaded from NCBI and have been published (Masaaki Konishi et al., 2013). Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by the author and is therefore not automatically updated.

Pseudozyma hubeiensis SY62 was isolated from 1,156 m in Sagami bay, Japan. This strain produced abundant amount of extracellular glycolipids, mannosylerythritol lipids (MEL), from vegetable oils and saccharides. The major component of glycolipids is monoacetylated type, named MEL-C. The draft genome sequence will contribute the analysis of metabolism of MEL synthetic pathways, and lead further development of the strain for industrial use.
