Engineering the Pichia stipitis Genome for Fermentation of Hemicellulose Hydrolysates

  title={Engineering the Pichia stipitis Genome for Fermentation of Hemicellulose Hydrolysates},
  author={Thomas W. Jeffries},
Pichia stipitis Pignal (1967) is a hemiascomycetous yeast (Kurtzman, 1990; Melake et al., 1996; Vaughan Martini, 1984), closely related to several yeast en­ dosymbionts of passalid beetles (Nardi et al., 2006) that inhabit and degrade white-rotted hardwood (Suh et al., 2003, 2004). It seems to be well adapted to this environment because the P. stipitis genomic sequence reveals numerous features that would enable survival and growth in a wood-inhabiting insect's gut (Nardi et aI., 2006). It has… CONTINUE READING
