Whole genome sequencing, de novo assembly and phenotypic profiling for the new budding yeast species Saccharomyces jurei
datasetmodified on 15.08.2018, 11:24
We present the complete genome assemblies of a newly discovered yeast species Saccharomyces jurei using Hi-seq and PacBio sequencing platforms. We found four novel genes in S. jurei and showed that it is a sister species to S. mikatae possessing a common chromosomal translocation with this species suggesting a shared evolutionary history. Phenotypically, it was able to grow well at higher concentrations of acetic acid and grow at wide range of temperatures.
