List of species/strains used in this study and relevant information pertaining to them. GenBank accessions numbers are given for each genomic region analysed in this study. Sequences retrieved from the CBS culture collection database ('CBS seq.') or from genome projects ('JGI genome') are indicated. Mating behaviour as originally determined by classical mating tests ('old') and as reassigned in this study based on the molecular data ('new') is indicated when needed: A1, A2, As and Sf stand for mating type A1, A2, asexual and self-fertile strains, respectively. The "molecular mating type" as identified by PCR detection of the pheromone receptor alleles STE3.A1 and STE3.A2 is depicted by yellow and blue circles, respectively. White circles indicate strains for which PCR detection gave negative results and 'n.d.' stands for 'not determined'. Strains highlighted in boldface were used in Figure 1 and those indicated by thick-lined blue or yellow circles were used in Figure 3. Sequences accession number of the HD1/HD2 alleles used in Figures 4b and 4c are also highlighted in boldface. Abbreviations: Rhodosporidium (R.), Rhodotorula (Rh.), Sporidiobolus (S.), Sporobolomyces (Sp.), Type strain (T), Lectotype (LT), Authentic strain (AUT). Species not yet formally described are shadowed in light yellow and those for which no molecular mating type was determined are shadowed in gray.
