A novel population of the biotechnologically important yeast Xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous, the sexual stage of Phaffia rhodozyma, has been recently isolated for the first time in the southern Hemisphere (Patagonia, Argentina). The aim of the present work was to phenotypically and genotypically characterize two representative strains of this new population, and assess such strains as a potential biotechnological source of astaxanthin, fatty acids and extracellular enzymes. Minor variations were… CONTINUE READING
