Scientists rise to the challenge of identifying and comparing yeast genomes


, : Scientists rise to the challenge of identifying and comparing yeast genomes.

A team of US researchers has identified and compared the genetic codes for all known species of yeasts closely related to bakers' and brewers' yeast (the former used in pizza dough, the latter in beer), which lays the foundation for future understanding of mutation and disease, as studies of yeasts often identify key genes and mechanisms of disease.
