Debaryomyces hansenii is a biotechnologically important yeast with interesting genetic and biochemical properties. It was originally isolated from saline environments such as sea water and concentrated brines. D. hansenii strains are also associated with cheese and meat processing. It represents one of the most halotolerant species of yeast and the presence of sodium in the medium appears to stimulate its growth.
