Finding renewable and economic sources of energy are one of the most important concerns for the continuation of the human species. New research, published in BioMed Central's open access journal Biotechnology for Biofuels, has produced a novel strain of yeast with improved xylose tolerance and metabolism, and consequently improved ethanol production. Bioethanol is considered one of cleanest renewable replacements for fossil fuel. However using glucose from crops, such as sugar cane or...

Yeast Infection No More review launches today and shows one its unique five step method that will get rid of their yeast infections once and for all. Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) July 07, 2012 Yeast Infection No More review says the key to getting rid of yeast infections is that one needs to return their inner body to its normal pH state. With the kind of diet that many of us eat, this is almost impossible and if one is taking prescription medications, it becomes all that much harder. However,...

The yeast Dekkera bruxellensis plays an important role in the production of wine, as it can have either a positive or a negative impact on the taste. Researchers at Lund University in Sweden, among others, have analyzed the yeast's genome sequenced by the US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute, giving wine producers the possibility to take control of the flavor development of the wine. Yeasts are an important ingredient in the production of various types of food, for example wine,...

Beer discovered two years ago onboard a shipwreck from the mid-1800s could possibly be recreated using living bacteria discovered in the brew, Finnish researchers announced last Thursday. According to Terhi Kinnunen of Reuters, Annika Wilhelmson from VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland said that chemical analysis of the beer, which was recovered from a sunken ship near Aland islands in the Baltic Sea, has shown that it would be possible to make an alcoholic beverage similar to the...

Scientists are 1 step closer to making more complex microscopic biological machines, following improvements in the way that they can 're-wire' DNA in yeast Scientists are one step closer to making more complex microscopic biological machines, following improvements in the way that they can "re-wire" DNA in yeast, according to research published today in the journal PLoS ONE. The researchers, from Imperial College London, have demonstrated a way of creating a new type of biological...

Promiscuous Yeast Hook Up In Wine-making Vats
2012-02-27 06:07:40

Humans aren't the only species that like to get busy with a glass of bubbly, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Turns out, the common baker's yeast has indulged in a frenzy of amorous frolicking in the fermentation vats of winemakers for hundreds, possibly thousands, of years, with interesting results. The unexpected promiscuity has made the lineage of many commercial and wild yeast strains difficult to trace. But there are also indications that such...
