Exposició permanent: Sacharomyces cerevisae used in beer making

This video reproduces the process of the Sacharomyces cerevisae used in beer making.

Some species of fungi are unicellular, in other words, they are formed by single cells that are dispersed and linked in short chains. The best known are yeast, which live in media rich in soluble nutrients.

Yeast reproduce by gemmation (asexually) or via spores (sexually). In asexual reproduction, the mother cell produces new gemmae when suitable conditions arise; when it reaches a certain size, the new cell separates from the mother cell. The mother cell conserves gemmation scars.
