As part of the season of Wednesday afternoon lectures, Professor Graeme Walker, Director of the Abertay Yeast Research Group at Abertay University, is giving a talk later this week on the subject of yeasts.
 
The lecture will take place in the D’Arcy Thompson Lecture Theatre in the Tower Building at the Dundee University, at 2.15pm this Wednesday – 18th October – at a charge of £2.
 
Yeasts are the world’s premier industrial microbes. Yeast and fermentation technology is entwined with the history of human civilisation – from ancient Egyptian brewing to modern day biotechnology.
 
This lecture will explore the diversity of yeasts and their products, following a journey from beer to biofuels to biopharmaceuticals and beyond.
