    • Construction of cellobiose-growing and fermenting Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains 

      Van Rooyen, Ronel; Hahn-Hagerdal, Barbel; La Grange, Daniel C.; Van Zyl, Willem H. (Elsevier, 2004-12)
      β-Glucosidase genes of fungal origins were isolated and heterologously expressed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae to enable growth on the disaccharide, cellobiose. To promote secretion of the β-glucosidases, the genes were fused ...

    • Role of cultivation media in the development of yeast strains for large scale industrial use 

      Hahn-Hagerdal, Barbel; Karhumaa, Kaisa; Larsson, Christer U.; Gorwa-Grauslund, Marie; Gorgens, Johann; Van Zyl, Willem H. (BioMed Central, 2005-11)
      Abstract: The composition of cultivation media in relation to strain development for industrial application is reviewed. Heterologous protein production and pentose utilization by Saccharomyces cerevisiae are used to ...
