Nucleotide sequences of internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions were determined to establish the guidelines for species identification in the genus Rhodosporidium. Forty-two strains of nine species of the genus Rhodosporidium were used for ITS (ITS1 and ITS2) analysis. Intraspecific length polymorphisms and sequence variations were observed within R. azoricum, R. diobovatum, R. paludigenum, R. sphaerocarpum and R. toruloides, while no variation was observed within R. babjevae and R… CONTINUE READING
