With the current interest in “naturally produced wines” that depend in part for their final characteristics on non-Saccharomyces yeasts, this article provides a very timely review of the specific flavour-active characteristics of the species that might play a positive role in both wine production. The main non-Saccharomyces yeast found in wine musts are listed together with their persistence during fermentation, as well as their potential contribution to the wine. This provides a must read that is bound to ferment interest in any yeast biologist.
Two Saccharomyces cerevisiae mutants that induce an immune-stimulatory activity in macrophages were identified.

Efficient integration of multiple markers into a single yeast cell can be important in biotechnological applications as well as some areas of research. This article describes an elegant vector system based on five selectable markers that can be used to achieve repeated cycles of gene insertion, in which multiple genes are simultaneously stably integrated into the genome of S. cerevisiae at sites that have previously been shown to have high expression and no effect on growth. The selection markers are flanked by loxP sites, so that each can be looped out by Cre recombinase-mediated recombination for further rounds of gene insertion.
