Rhodosporidium glutinis ATCC 204091 (also known as Rhodosporidium toruloides) is a pink-colored oleaginous fungus. It was isolated from soil in Baroda, India and can grow on a wide range of carbon sources. The strain was obtained from the ATCC.

Please note: The Rhodosporidium glutinis ATCC 204091 was not sequenced or assembled at the DOE Joint Genome Institute. Instead, the assembly (Paul et al., 2014) was downloaded from NCBI on 6/3/2019. Gene models and functional predictions were then generated using the JGI annotation pipeline.
