The comprehensive history of yeast research. ac Traces the growing understanding of yeasts and their role in the evolution of microbiology, biochemistry, cytology, and genetics. ac Details how findings in yeast research were used to overcome complex problems and to develop currently accepted scientific concepts and methods. ac Emphasizes experimental evidence, by reproducing many figures from the original researchersa work as well as illustrations of the equipment they used. The book is enlivened with images of many of the scientists and offers accounts of notable incidents in the lives of some of them. ac Serves as a resource for microbiology, biochemistry, or general biology students.that time, it seemed practicable to isolate peripheral regions of the cells as discrete particles from autolyzed yeast (1866). ... were inhibited, but notthe respiration of other substrates such as ethanol or pyruvate; nor was therateof endogenous respiration affected. ... it must be concluded that the yeastcell membrane can discriminate between glucose, fructose and mannose as compared with galactose, anbsp;...
