By Pietro Buzzini,Rosa Margesin

Yeasts are a flexible staff of eukaryotic microorganisms, showing heterogeneous dietary profiles and a rare skill to outlive in quite a lot of normal and man-associated ecosystems, together with chilly habitats. Cold-adapted yeasts inhabit a variety of low-temperature environments the place they're subjected to seasonal or everlasting chilly stipulations. for that reason, they've got developed a couple of model innovations with reference to development and copy, metabolic actions, survival and safety. because of their certain skill to thrive effectively at low or even subzero temperatures, cold-adapted yeasts are more and more attracting awareness in simple technological know-how and for his or her huge, immense biotechnological potential.

This publication provides our present realizing of the variety and ecology of cold-adapted yeasts in around the globe chilly ecosystems, their model ideas, and their biotechnological value. particular emphasis is put on the exploitation of cold-adapted yeasts as a resource of cold-active enzymes and biopolymers, in addition to their merits for nutrition microbiology, bioremediation and biocontrol. extra, features of meals biodeterioration are considered.
