Yarrowia lipolytica is an early diverging species of the Saccharomycotina subphylum, which is recognized as a valuable host for many biotechnological applications exploiting its oleaginous capacities. The 20.5-Mb genome of the Polish Y. lipolytica strain A-101 will greatly help decipher the genetic basis of the regulation of its lipid metabolism.
