ARC-TC IWP publishes study on non-Saccharomyces yeast Lachancea thermotolerans

PhD Student Ana Hranilovic has published her work on the yeast Lachancea thermotolerans (formerly Kluyveromyces thermotolerans) as a species with remarkable, yet underexplored, biotechnological potential. To gain an insight into L. thermotolerans population diversity and structure, 172 isolates sourced from diverse habitats worldwide were analysed using a set of 14 microsatellite markers. The resultant clustering revealed that the evolution of L. thermotolerans has been […]
