Saitoella complicata

Saitoella complicata is an anamorphic and saprobic yeast, belonging to
the subphylum Taphrinomycotina. The phylogenetic position has been
uncertain among Taphrinomycotina. This yeast was isolated from a soil
that the Himalaya exploration team of the University of Tokyo brought
from Bhutan in 1967 (Goto et al., 1987, J Gen Appl Microbiol, 33, 75-85).
 Yeasts similar to Saitoella have not been reported anywhere until
Kurtzman and Robnett reported Saitoella coloradoensis in 2012 (Antonie
van Leeuwenhoek, 101, 795-802). The 14,220,909 nucleotides of the genome
sequence have been identified and more than 8000 protein-coding genes
were predicted (Nishida et al., 2014, J Gen Appl Microbiol, 60, 7-12).
