Organism ImageSaccharomyces cerevisiae (baker's yeast)

Baker's yeast, brewer's yeast; Budding yeast that is a major model organism and of great industrial importance

Lineage: Eukaryota[1057]; Fungi[393]; Dikarya[342]; Ascomycota[265]; Saccharomycotina[59]; Saccharomycetes[59]; Saccharomycetales[59]; Saccharomycetaceae[35]; Saccharomyces[10]; Saccharomyces cerevisiae[1]
The budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is one of the major model organisms for understanding cellular and molecular processes in eukaryotes. This single-celled organism is also important in industry, where it is used to make bread, beer, wine, enzymes, and pharmaceuticals.The Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome is approximately 12 Mb, organized in 16 chromosomes.
