The de novo genome of a unique marine yeast, Wickerhamomyces anomalus isolated from seaweed along Indian coast is presented. The genome assembly was carried out using MaSurCA assembler that generated a data size ~14.3 mb from short and long reads obtained from Illumina Hiseq 4000 and GridION-X5 respectively. This assembled genome files were used for predicting genes using Augustus gene prediction tool that reported 6720 genes and proteins. The gene sequences were used for metabolic pathway analysis using KAAS database. The protein sequences file was used for secondary analysis predict the presence of signal peptides using SignalP tool, predicting protein family, domains using Pfam tool and prediction of transmembrane helices in proteins using TMHMM tool.
