Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

From basic foodstuffs to modern-day pharmaceuticals, the pivotal role that yeast has played in shaping human development is undisputed. Their ease of cultivation, amenability to genetic modification, and general robustness underscore its central role in biotechology. Exploring (and exploiting) the diversity in yeast metabolism have been the cornerstone of modern-day yeast biotechnology, with daily reports on new and interesting applications of yeast.

This Special Issue of Applied Sciences will highlight the most recent advances in the following fields:

  • Exploration of diversity in yeast metabolism;
  • Metabolic engineering of yeast (both Saccharomyces and non-Saccharomyces yeast) for biotechnological applications;
  • Optimising large-scale production of metabolites (proteins, lipids etc.);
  • The use of non-Saccharomyces yeast (non-conventional yeast) in industrial applications;
  • The use of waste products as feedstock of large-scale yeast cultivation
