University Roundtable: Beer, biofuels, and beyond: Yeast biodiversity in the age of genomics

Yeasts are responsible for the production of many foods, beverages, and fuels. Dr. Chris Todd Hittinger explores how interspecies hybrid yeasts ferment many iconic products, including lager beer, which is the most commonly fermented beverage on the planet. Dr. Hittinger will offer a look at these processes, along with other diverse yeasts and engineered hybrids that show considerable promise and have not yet been fully explored.
