Through science demos, displays and posters, visitors learned about the relevance of yeast biotechnology to our everyday lives and had a bit of fun at the same time. Photo gallery
Well done to Lorena for her great poster presentation at SMYTE36 (Small Meeting of Yeast Transport & Energetics) which took place in Italy from 6-9 September 2018. The first of many for our YEASTDOC ESRs.
On 20th March YEASTDOC coordinator John Morrissey gave a talk on redesigning yeast to make different flavours, as part of the Lifelong Learning Festival in Cork. It was a fun, interactive evening where the 50/60 attendees were invited to smell a variety of yeast cultures to see if they could identify the different aromas being produced. A local beer sommelier and qualified wine taster guided participants through the flavours and aromas in a variety of craft beers and fine wines.
