Summary of "New rapid PCR protocol based on High-Resolution Melting analysis (HRMA) to identify Saccharomyces cerevisiae and other species within its genus."

Selection projects aiming at the identification of new Saccharomyces strains are always on going as the use of the suitable yeast can strongly improve fermented food production, particularly winemaking. They are mainly targeted on S. cerevisiae, but others species in the Saccharomyces genus are of interest. For this reason, more and more efficient molecular techniques for yeast identification able to accelerate yeast selection process are always needed. Among the Saccharomyces genus, four yeasts are widespread in natural environments: S. cerevisiae, S. uvarum, S. kudriavzevii and S. paradoxus. Therefore, among the Saccharomyces species, their discrimination is of great interest.

Electron microscopy involving rapid freezing of the samples. The imaging of frozen-hydrated molecules and organelles permits the best possible resolution closest to the living state, free of chemical fixatives or stains.

Analysis based on the mathematical function first formulated by Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Fourier in 1807. The function, known as the Fourier transform, describes the sinusoidal pattern of any fluctuating pattern in the physical world in terms of its amplitude and its phase. It has broad applications in biomedicine, e.g., analysis of the x-ray crystallography data pivotal in identifying the double helical nature of DNA and in analysis of other molecules, including viruses, and the modified back-projection algorithm universally used in computerized tomography imaging, etc. (From Segen, The Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)

Type of microscopy used to study biological systems at high resolution.
