“The book is an example of writing with the minimum of redundancy and maximum information, organised into a versatile illustrated review on modern yeast biology.” (British Journal of Biomedical Science, 1 October 2012)
“In summary, this well-written work is a significant achievement that will reward both casual reading and more detailed study - recommended!.” (Society for General Microbiology, 25 February 2013)
From the Back Cover
Finally, a stand-alone, all-inclusive textbook on yeast biology.
Based on the feedback resulting from his highly successful monograph, Horst Feldmann has totally rewritten the contents to produce a comprehensive, student-friendly textbook on the topic. The scope has been widened, with more than double the content so as to include all aspects of yeast biology, from molecular genetics via cell biology right up to biotechnology applications. The cell and molecular biology sections have been vastly expanded, while information on other yeast species and aspects on yeast evolution have been added, with contributions from renowned authors. Naturally, the illustrations are in full color throughout, and the book is backed by a complimentary website:
The resulting textbook caters to the needs of an increasing number of students in biomedical research, cell and molecular biology, microbiology and biotechnology who end up using yeast as an important tool
or model organism.
