Brettanomyces naardenensis is a spoilage yeast with potential for biotechnological applications for production of innovative beverages with low alcohol content and high attenuation degree. Here, we present the first annotated genome of B. naardenensis CBS 7540. The genome of B. naardenensis CBS 7540 was assembled into 76 contigs, totaling 11,283,072 nucleotides. In total, 5168 protein-coding sequences were annotated. The study provides functional genome annotation, phylogenetic analysis, and discusses genetic determinants behind notable stress tolerance and biotechnological potential of B. naardenensis.
