Comments P.729 right column 2nd paragraph: "Basal lineages of the Saccharomycotina subphylum (Table 3) have long been represented solely by Y. lipolytica, whose genome exhibits a number of important differences with the three previous subgroups, such as its significantly larger size (20.5 Mb), lower compactness (46% coding), multiple rDNA loci located in subtelomeric regions, and dispersed 5S RNA gene (116 copies of this gene are distributed across the genome) like in most Pezizomycotina and Taphrinomycotina (Bergeron and Drouin 2008). With nearly 6600 protein-coding genes, 14% of which are split, it also possesses the largest protein repertoire. Additional species of Yarrowia that are now sequenced (see Table 3) confirm these trends." See notes beneath table
