Virtual Issues

Yeast Food Microbiology

For generations yeast has been used for production of food and alcoholic beverages. Despite this long usage there is, however, still much interest in how we through studies of yeast physiology at the mechanistic level further improve production of food and beverages. In order to illustrate many of these exciting developments we have assembled a virtual issue of papers published in FEMS Yeast Research on this topic.

Organelles and Cells

Industrial Biotechnology and Metabollic Engineering

Yeast Genetics and Molecular Biology

Fermented Food and Beverage

Pathogenic Yeast
