Yeast experimental sexual evolution

(Schizosaccharomyces japonicus)



Here we use fission yeast to approach one of the most important questions in evolutionary biology: what are the advantages of sex over clonal propagation? Learn more in our dedicated web page...

Experimental evolution of ethanol tolerance

(Saccharomyces cerevisae PE-2)



Here we use the S. cerevisiae strain PE-2, widely used in the Brazilian bioethanol industry, to challege cellular adaptation to an increasing ethanol concentration. Learn more...
