Description of Yeast Biotechnology Diversity and Applications

The Yeast Biotechnology book defined that yeast are Eukaryotic unicellular micro fungi that are widely distributed in the natural environments. Although yeasts are different between as bacteria in the natural environments, they have been isolated from terrestrial, aquatic and atmospheric environments. Yeast communities have been found in association with plants, animals and insects. 

Some of yeasts also have been isolated from extreme environments (e.g. high sugar or high salt concentrations), low temperature like yeasts isolated from Antarctica, and low oxygen availability like intestinal tracts of animals. Around fifteen hundred species of yeasts belonging to over hundred genera have been described so far.
