Saccharomyces cerevisiae

saccharomyces cerevisiae

(Science: fungus) A species of yeast which is an important model organism for biological study, particularly for genetics and molecular biology.

The entire genome of this species has been base sequenced and it is used to do research on the basic cellular mechanics of replication, recombination, cell division and metabolism. Saccharomyces cerevisiae is also economically important in the food industry, where it is used to ferment grain sugars to make beer and as baker's yeast for baking bread or making other food which requires rising by gas bubbles of carbon dioxide. It is also sometimes taken as a vitamin supplement for protein, the B vitamins, and folic acid.

Brewer's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)

I am currently doing a project on landfill biocover. I'll be mixing grass compost and brewer's yeast (spent yeast) together and apply them to landfill to see whether they have the ability to oxidize landfill methane into carbon dioxide as methane is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Hopefull...
