Regulation of Energy Flux of Yeast during Steady State and Oscillatory Growth
Baker’s and brewer’s yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a microorganism of major industrial importance, both within traditional and new branches of industry. For effective control of biotechnological yeast processes, an improved understanding of metabolic regulation in yeast is necessary in combination with development of effective control variables.
