easts in Biotechnology and Human Health (PDF) discusses genome-based strategies to offer an all-inclusive understanding of yeasts in Human Health and as model organisms in fundamental research or industrial production. Using several Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains and numerous non-conventional yeast species isolated from diverse origins, it explains essential biological processes, the biotechnological exploitation of yeast, and pathogenesis control. It also shows how functional and comparative genomics and the progress of genome engineering tools are used in modern yeast research.

The usage of yeasts as experimental eukaryotic models gradually gained prominence when several Nobel Prizes in Physiology/Medicine and Chemistry were awarded for state-of-the-art research, using yeast strains to clarify molecular mechanisms in a broad range of human physiological processes and diseases, like autophagy, telomerase activity, and cell cycle regulation.

This ebook provides useful insights for scientists in yeast research, clinical scientists working with yeast infectious models, and industrial researchers using applied microbiology.
