Candida crusiae

Thu May 5 13:41:10 EST 1994

A number of years ago we had a strain of the yeast species Candida crusiaea 
(spelling of the species name may be off by a letter or two!) which was a 
super food source for Drosophila when sprayed onto cultures.  This culture
was unfortunately subsequently lost.  Does anyone on the network currently 
keep this species in their labs, or know where a culture might be obtained?
I have asked my yeast colleagues here, but they seem to be pretty much 
limited to knowledge of Saccharomyces species.
Thanks and aloha
