About Komagataella pastoris

Komagataella pastoris (formerly Pichia pastoris) is a methylotrophic yeast that has been used as a model organism. K. pastoris has been widely used as an expression system of proteins due to its high growth rate, low cost of growth media and can be grown in much higher cell densities.
