Abstract

Phylogenetic relationships of the yeast genus Lipomyces were studied using sequences from fragments of 5.8S rRNA gene and from internal transcribed spacer region ITS2 of 13 strains (7 type strains included) representing five species and subtaxa, and originating from different geographical locations (Japan, Trinidad, Nigeria, North America, Western Europe, Russia, South Africa, Mauritius). Parsimony and distance analyses were performed. Tree topology from the parsimony and distance analyses of the sequences confirmed the results of nDNA reassociation. Results segregate the 13 isolates of Lipomyces into five major clades.
