July 2017: Angela submitted her thesis to the University of Southern Denmark. Congratulations.
June 2017: David has just had his paper ‘Yeast multi-stress resistance and lag-phase characterization during wine fermentation’ published in FEMS Yeast Research. It will be available soon and will also feature in the ISSY FEMS Virtual Special Issue.
Our partners at VTT together with leading researchers in the field of brewing have published a fascinating review article in the June issue of FEMS Yeast Research ‘New yeasts – new brews: modern approaches to brewing yeast design and development’.
Angela’s paper ‘Microorganism design for heterologous biosynthesis of cannabinoids’ was also published in FEMS Yeast Research this month.
May 2017: May is proving to be a bumper month for publications: Leonie and the team at Chalmers recently published their work in Nature Communications ‘Metabolic engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae for production of very long chain fatty acid-derived chemicals’
Raúl published a paper with Nurzhan this month in PLOS Biology entitled ‘Evolutionary restoration of fertility in an interspecies hybrid yeast, by whole-genome duplication after a failed mating-type switch’. Great to see joint publications coming from the YEASTCELL consortium.
Javier’s paper was published in the May edition of FEMS Yeast Research ‘Polymorphisms in the LAC12 gene explain lactose utilisation variability in Kluyveromyces marxianus strains.’
April 2017: Monks and Microbes – Linking European history, brewing, and yeast research:
