The genome sequence and gene models of Saccharomyces arboricola H-6 were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI) but were downloaded from Yeast Population Reference Panel (YPRP), and it is available on NCBI as well (Sep 24, 2019). In order to allow comparative analyses with other fungal genomes sequenced by the JGI, a copy of this genome is incorporated into Mycocosm. JGI tools were used to automatically annotate predicted proteins. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by NCBI and is therefore not automatically updated.

Saccharomyces arboricolus was isolated from different regions in China from Fagaceae trees by the team of Feng-Yan Bai. Genetic crosses with other Saccharomyces species and spore viability analysis support a distinct biological species. Genome sequence unambiguously shows a separate phylogenetic species. The genome consists of sixteen linear chromosomes, largely collinear and synthetic with S. cerevisiae and other closely related species.
