Yarrowia lipolytica metabolic modeling and genome analysis

Here, we share imported datasets to enable analyses in KBase narratives. We've imported the published metabolic model of Yarrowia lipolytica, which was built, manually curated, and validated by Loira et al. (2012). The Yarrowia lipolytica genome was retrieved from NCBI RefSeq (GCF_000002525.2) and was described in the publication by Dujon et al. (2004).

Furthermore, genome analysis tools and datasets can be accessed at the MycoCosm portal page:
