- ... In nature, Saccharomyces yeasts manifest a number of adaptive responses to overcome adverse environments such as filamentation, invasive growth, flocculation and adherence to solid surfaces. Certain Saccharomyces wild yeasts, namely "flor yeasts," have also acquired the ability to form a buoyant biofilm at the broth surface. Here we report that mutations in a single gene, identified as FLO11, sepa ...
