The extreme xerophilic mould Xeromyces bisporus--growth and competition at various water activities.
Little is known about the mould, Xeromyces bisporus, unique in its strong xerophilicity and ability to grow at water activity (a(w)) 0.62, lower than for any other known organism. The linear growthExpand

Xerochrysium gen. nov. and Bettsia, genera encompassing xerophilic species of Chrysosporium
On the basis of a study of ITS sequences, Vidal et al. (Rev. Iber. Micol. 17: 22, 2000) recommended that the genus Chrysosporium be restricted to species belonging to Onygenales. Using nrLSU genes,Expand

Genome and physiology of the ascomycete filamentous fungus Xeromyces bisporus, the most xerophilic organism isolated to date.
Xeromyces bisporus can grow on sugary substrates down to 0.61, an extremely low water activity. Its genome size is approximately 22 Mb. Gene clusters encoding for secondary metabolites wereExpand

De novo assembly of Dekkera bruxellensis: a multi technology approach using short and long-read sequencing and optical mapping
BackgroundIt remains a challenge to perform de novo assembly using next-generation sequencing (NGS). Despite the availability of multiple sequencing technologies and tools (e.g., assemblers) it isExpand

Phylogeny and intraspecific variation of the extreme xerophile, Xeromyces bisporus.
The filamentous ascomycete Xeromyces bisporus is an extreme xerophile able to grow down to a water activity of 0.62. We have inferred the phylogenetic position of Xeromyces in relation to otherExpand

Transcriptome of the Alternative Ethanol Production Strain Dekkera bruxellensis CBS 11270 in Sugar Limited, Low Oxygen Cultivation
Dekkera bruxellensis can outcompete Saccharomyces cerevisiae in environments with low sugar concentrations. It is usually regarded as a spoilage yeast but has lately been identified as an alternativeExpand

A hybrid de novo genome assembly of the honeybee, Apis mellifera, with chromosome-length scaffolds
BackgroundThe ability to generate long sequencing reads and access long-range linkage information is revolutionizing the quality and completeness of genome assemblies. Here we use a hybrid approachExpand

A comprehensive model of DNA fragmentation for the preservation of High Molecular Weight DNA
For long-read sequencing applications, shearing of DNA is a significant issue as it limits the read-lengths generated by sequencing. During extraction and storage of DNA the DNA polymers areExpand
