Yeasts are not only essential for the production of bread, beer and wine, but also play a major role in many more modern industrial processes, such as the production of enzymes, pigments, antioxydants etc. Moreover many yeasts are important as human pathogens, or as spoilage organisms in the food industry. This CD-ROM offers a multi-disciplinary approach to the identification of all known species of this fascinating group of micro-organisms and has been produced by leading experts in the field. It not only contains descriptions and photographs of the morphology, but also a complete set of physiological data as well as ribosomal DNA sequences. All these data can be used for an interactive identification of unknown yeast isolates. In addition there are hyperlinked introductory and explanatory texts, an illustrated glossary and a selection of important literature. Moreover, the system contains the identification software for ALLEV, at this moment the most flexible identification system based on automated reading of microtitre plates.
