Of 29 strains of various spp., 24 gave generally similar chromosomal band patterns (14 to 17 bands in the size range from 200 to 2,000 kilobase pairs), as determined by orthogonal field alternation gel electrophoresis. However, most of these stains showed unique band patterns due to chromosome polymorphisms. Strains of , and gave bands that were indicative of small numbers of larger chromosomes (> 1,000 kilobase pairs). These results suggest that should be included in another genus and that spp. may be different from other yeasts in having a large number of chromosomes, the majority of which are smaller than 1,000 kilobase pairs.
