    1. It's not all about us: evolution and maintenance of Cryptococcus virulence requires selection outside the human host

      The AIDS-related pathogenic yeast Cryptococcus neoformans is not an obligate pathogen, as human-human transmission is either absent or rare. Selection in the environment must thus be invoked to shape the evolution of this taxa, and directly influences genotypic and trait diversity. We examine abiotic and biotic stresses in the environment, and discuss how they could shape the factors that are commonly identified as important virulence traits.

      Version of Record online: 6 DEC 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/yea.3219

      Wine is a complex beverage, comprising thousands of metabolites that are produced through the action of microbial communities that originate in the vineyard and the winery and which reflect the influence of several factors including grape variety, geographical location, climate, vineyard spraying, technological practices and season. As these microbial inhabitants of the vineyard and winery can directly influence wine flavour and aroma, there is enormous interest in isolating and characterising these communities in order to increase wine flavour diversity, while enhancing regionality. In this review we describe the role and relevance of the main non-Saccharomyces yeast species found in vineyards and wineries, including the latest applications of these species in both winemaking and other biotechnological applications, while providing details of the molecular and genomic resources that are available for their in depth characterisation.

      Version of Record online: 2 DEC 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/yea.3218

      The budding yeast Naumovozyma castellii (syn. Saccharomyces castellii) has been used in a wide diversity of research studies regarding molecular genetics and functional genomics. Significantly, it has contributed to major insights concerning the molecular mechanisms of telomere maintenance and genome evolution, revealing a functional RNA interference pathway in budding yeast and adding intriguing new perspectives on centromere DNA evolution.
