Here, we present the draft genome sequence of Apiotrichum porosum DSM 27194 generated on PacBio platform. Characterization of this oleaginous yeast originally collected from the grassland in Karlsruhe Germany, revealed potential for its utilization as a source of single cell oil (SCO) and gluconic acid (GA). The availability of the genome sequence provides a valuable resource for the elucidation of the genetic processes determining SCO and GA biosynthesis.
Keywords: Apiotrichum porosum DSM 27194, draft genome, gluconic acid, oleaginous yeast and single cell oil.
