The genomes of over 700 yeasts belonging to Saccharomycotina subphylum have been sequenced and added to the Y1000+ database. Most of these yeasts are distinct species distantly related to the model yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Data generation is ongoing, but we are beginning to plan the first round of publications. To request data access or collaboration, please email one of the Y1000+ PIs ( Chris Todd Hittinger, Antonis Rokas, and Cletus P. Kurtzman ).

Publicly Available Genomes

By our count, there are currently publicly available genomes for 126 species. Those available as of the end of 2015 are referenced in our recent review article. To access publicly available data, you should download the original genome sequences from GenBank or from the authors' websites. For embargoed data (e.g. those sequenced by JGI), please contact the PIs of the relevant studies. We cannot give you access to unpublished genomes sequenced by others.


Phenotypic Data

Note that the phenotypic data comes from type strains, unless the trait is listed as variable (v). Published genome sequences are not always from the taxonomic type strain.

Access to the private BLAST database is controlled via WEI logon, if you do not have one please contact Chris Hittinger to request an account
