Table 3 Fatty acid and biomass yields and rates, calculated during nitrogen starvation from shake flask cultivation on single sugars glucose and xylose. This includes timepoints between 24 h – 56 h for BOT-O on glucose and xylose, and BOT-A2 on glucose, as well as 32–56 h for BOT-A2 on xylose. For better comparisons yields were also calculated as an hourly rate
