About Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a unicellular fungus. It is commonly known as baker's, brewer's or budding yeast. It is used in the production of a number of human foodstuffs, including alcoholic beverages and in the baking industry, and is widely used as a model species in the study of eukaryotic biology. In 1996, the genome of S. cerevisiae was the first eukaryotic genome to be completely deciphered.
