Abstract

<p>Serial dilutions of each species were spotted on medium (Yeast Nitrogen Base w/o amino acids) with 2% of each sugar (Me-a-Glu  =  methyl-α-glucoside). Growth was scored after 3 d incubation at 22°C. +, growth; −, no growth. # <i>MALS</i> genes, the number of maltase genes found in each of these strains. Genotypes are listed in <a href="http://www.plosbiology.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pbio.1001446#pbio.1001446.s018" target="_blank">Table S5</a>.</p
