The Kluyveromyces lactis genome sequence, assembly, and annotation displayed in Map Viewer (build 1.1) is based on the complete K. lactis strain NRRL Y-1140 genome provided by the Genolevures Consortium. The Genolevures Consortium sequenced the K. lactis genome at 11.4X coverage using whole genome shotgun (WGS) sequencing. They assembled the sequence into chromosomes with zero gaps, and they annotated predicted genes.

The K. lactis genome is approximately 10.6 Mb, organized in six chromosomes.

The NCBI Map Viewer provides graphical displays of features on the K. lactis genome. Map features that can be seen along the sequence include NCBI contigs, genes, and RefSeq transcripts. You can find features of interest by submitting a query against the whole genome or against one chromosome at a time. Results are indicated both graphically, as tick marks on the ideogram, and in a tabular format. The results table includes links to a chromosome graphical view, where the feature can be seen in the context of additional data. You can also browse a chromosome by clicking on a chromosome link in the ideogram above. Use the "Maps & Options" window, available on individual chromosome displays, to configure your display. Extensive documentation and tutorials are provided to describe the resource.

K. lactis is a petite-negative hemiascomycete yeast. Compared to Saccharomyces cerevisiae, it can use a wider variety of carbon sources, and many of its strains were originally isolated from milk-derived products in which the major carbon source is lactose. K. lactis is commonly used in genetic research and for industrial applications, such as the production of beta-galactosidase and the heterologous proteins calf prochymosin, human serum albumin, and human interleukin-1-gamma.
