Abstract

Yeasts are eukaryotic unicellular microfungi that play important roles in industry, the environment, and medical science. This article describes the classification, ecology, cytology, metabolism, and genetics of yeast, with specific reference to Saccharomyces cerevisiae – baker’s yeast. The biotechnological potential of yeasts, including their exploitation in food, fermentation, and pharmaceutical industries, is also discussed in the article.
