Saccharomyces cerevisiae is an important research tool and industrial reagent. This organism, a single-celled fungus commonly known as baker's yeast or brewer's yeast, is the basis for much of our understanding of the molecular and cellular biology of eukaryotes. The second edition of this authoritative reference updates certain chapters and includes new chapters on ageing and on the cell wall. Other topics include morphogenesis, protein trafficking, lipids and membranes, and stress responses. With a wealth of new research data collected since the first edition, The Metabolism and Molecular Physiology of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, 2nd Edition is an important reference for bioscientists across many disciplines.
