Saccharomyces eubayanus, a type of yeast, is a likely parent of the lager brewing yeast, Saccharomyces pastorianus. With discoveries in other parts of the world shortly after, the South American origins of S. eubayanus have been challenged, in particular by genomic and phylogenetic evidence suggesting a Tibetan origin. The proponents of this theory argue that it corresponds better with geography and world trade history.

The genome sequence and gene models of Saccharomyces eubayanus FM1318 were not determined by the Joint Genome Institute (JGI), but were downloaded from Ensembl Fungi on April 11, 2020. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by Ensembl and is therefore not automatically updated. The JGI Annotation Pipeline was used to add additional functional annotation to the author's chromosomes and proteins.
