The molecular basis of the ethanol-stress response in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Emslie, Dianne (2002) The molecular basis of the ethanol-stress response in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. PhD thesis thesis, Victoria University of Technology.
For thousands of years, brewers and winemakers have used the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to produce alcoholic beverages by fermentation of carbohydrates in grains, but recent large-scale industrial processes create an environment in which the microorganisms are stressed and unable to perform satisfactorily. Ethanol stress is one of the major physiological stresses encountered in industrial fermentations and is therefore the principal focus of investigations described in this thesis.
