Fifty-two strains of the genus , including 50 yeasts of the sensu stricto complex (sensu Vaughan Martini 1989 [A. Vaughan Martini, Syst. Appl. Microbiol. 12:119-122, 1989]), were analyzed for nine isozyme loci with starch gel electrophoresis. The genetic analysis of isozyme data provided further evidence that the sensu stricto complex is a genetically heterogeneous group. Twenty-two different electrophoretic types were identified and could be grouped into four clusters. However, no correlation between these clusters and the currently defined species , and was detected. Several strains could not be assigned to their putative cluster.
