De Novo Assembly of Candida sojae and Candida boidinii Genomes,
Unexplored Xylose-Consuming Yeasts with Potential for Renewable
Borelli, Guilherme ; Jose, Juliana ; Teixeira, Paulo ; Santos, Leandro V ; Pereira , Gonçalo AG Genome Announcements 2016
Candida boidinii and Candida sojae yeasts were isolated from energy cane bagasse and plague-insects. Both have fast xylose uptake rate and produce great amounts of xylitol, which are interesting features for food and 2G ethanol industries. Because they
lack published genomes, we have sequenced and assembled them, offering new possibilities for gene prospection.
