About this book

Introduction

This book gives a general overview of the biology and molecular biology of yeasts. Topics emphasized include yeast taxonomy (including evolution of yeasts), yeast ecology, with as much emphasis as possible on the relationship between the organisms and the environment, the structure and function of the yeast cell, its life cycle and metabolism, and the relationship between yeasts and mankind, including pathogenicity, traditional and current industrial and therapeutic uses and related topics. The contribution of yeasts to fundamental research in biology is discussed as an integral part of the subject.
