The accumulation of damaged protein is a hallmark of aging that not even the humble baker's yeast can escape. Yet, aged yeast cells spawn off youthful daughter cells without any of the telltale protein clumps.
UC Riverside entomologists explain why flies are attracted to beer and products of yeast fermentation.
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.
