About the book

The application of microorganisms to produce novel bioproducts, as well as products with economic importance, already stablished has a great value for the economy and the environment achieving a sustainable production in the world.

Saccharomyces genus has a considerable importance in the production of several biomolecules by fermentation with vast application on industries such as agricultural, pharmaceutical or cosmetics etc. Also saccharomyces is a model system for anticancer agents studies and this genus shows an extensive relevance on medical research. This microorganism is also applied for biological control against plat and other pathogens consequently, and is crucial to understand the mechanisms and applications of biocontrol using yeasts. Saccharomyces book seeks to gather researches and studies involving saccharomyces genus with application on agricultural and pharmaceutical industries and other applications, showing the importance and the bottle necks of saccharomyces genus utilisation.

This book also intents to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art of saccharomyces genus utilisation on the most important areas such as agricultural, pharmaceutical, medicine and cosmetics.

About the editor

Thalita Peixoto Basso

University of São Paulo

Thalita Peixoto Basso received her Bachelor’s degree in Agriculture Engineering from Londrina State University (PR-Brazil). During this period, she studied the fermentation characteristics of Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated from ethanol industrial processes. She obtained her Master’s degree in Science from the Agrifood Industry, Food and Nutrition Department of the University of Sao Paulo (ESALQ/USP, SP-Brazil). During this time, she isolated and selected fungi with high cellulose activity for the enzymatic hydrolysis of sugarcane bagasse. She received her Ph.D. in Science from the Soil Science Department (Agricultural Microbiology Program) at ESALQ/USP, with a period of one year as a visiting scholar at the University of California Berkeley and Energy Bioscience Institute. Meanwhile, she worked on the improvement of S. cerevisiae by hybridization for increased tolerance toward inhibitors from second-generation ethanol substrates. Currently, she is a postdoctoral working with metabolomics and proteomics of fermentation processes at the Genetics Department from ESALQ/USP.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
