Iowa researchers identify single-celled fungus yeast for fermentation

In Iowa, single-celled fungus yeast is essential to humans, a linchpin in the production of bread, beer, wine, and biofuels, among many applications. Now, biologists at the University of Iowa have found that a new type of genetic variation in yeast can improve ethanol production.
