Welcome to the Yeast World!

We use yeasts to study basic and applied aspects of microbial physiology, fungal development and evolutionary ecology. We address questions related to sugar utilization in yeast fermentations, to the evolution of sex in early diverged lineages of Basidiomycetes, or to the distribution and ecology of wild Saccharomyces populations and their domestication by man. To do so we combine the awesome power of Next-Generation (whole-genome) Sequencing with in-depth physiological and ecological studies.

Our work includes computational and experimental methods and integrates genomics, evolutionary genetics, ecology, microbial diversity and physiology.
