The halotolerant and osmotolerant yeast Zygosaccharomyces rouxii can produce multiple volatile compounds and has the ability to grow on lignocellulosic hydrolysates. We report the annotated genome sequence of Z. rouxii NRRL Y-64007 to support its development as a platform organism for biofuel and bioproduct production.
