Yarrowia lipolytica is a fungus that degrades hydrophobic substrates very efficiently. The fungus displays several important characteristics that have encouraged researchers to study various basic biological and biotechnological applications in detail. Although the organism has been used as model system for studying dimorphism, salt tolerance, heterologous protein expression, and lipid accumulation, there are no recent reviews on the environmental and industrial applications of this organism…
