Latest Yeast Stories
Scientists in Switzerland have managed to form a “feedback loop” between a computer and a common yeast, precisely controlling the switching on and off of specific genes.
Any way you slice it, bread that contains critical nutrients could help combat severe malnutrition in impoverished regions.
Scientists have synthesized from scratch a so-called chromosome 'arm' - one of the largest DNA molecules ever synthesized/
In the quest to understand genomes—how they're built, how they're organized and what makes them work—a team of Johns Hopkins researchers has engineered from scratch a computer-designed yeast chromosome and incorporated into their creation a new system that lets scientists intentionally rearrange the yeast's genetic material.
University of Illinois scientists have engineered a new strain of yeast that converts seaweed into biofuel in half the time it took just months ago.
New research suggests oxygen may have been made on Earth hundreds of millions of years before its debut in the atmosphere.
A new study has created an analog of what researchers think the first multicellular cooperation might have looked like, showing that yeast cellsâ€”in an environment that requires them to work for their foodâ€”grow and reproduce better in multicellular clumps than singly.
Seventy percent of eight-month-old babies have a salt (sodium chloride) intake higher than the recommended UK maximum level, due to being fed salty and processed foods like yeast extract, gravy, baked beans and tinned spaghetti.
If you think yeast is most useful for beer and pizza crust, here's something else to chew on: a team of U.S. researchers has identified and compared the genetic codes for all known species of yeasts closely related to bakers' and brewers' yeast.
