Abstract An efficient one-step transformation method for the dimorphic yeast Yarrowia lipolytica is described. Using cells grown overnight on agar plates, the whole process is carried out within 1 h. The transformant clones could be recovered on selective plates as early as 36–48 h after plating. The efficiency was better than 105 transformants/μg replicative plasmid DNA. Effects of cell density, dithiothreitol, heat shock, poly(ethylene glycol) 4000 concentration and the wetness of selective plates were investigated.
