Construction of a genomic library of the lactose utilising yeast Kluyveromyces marxianus var. fragilis for transformation into Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(Lincoln University, 1994)
The object of this project was to create a genomic library of an industrial Kluyveromyces marxianus var. fragilis strain as a preliminary step to cloning the genes responsible for lactose utilisation into Saccharomyces ...
Development of a eukaryotic microbial fuel cell using Arxula adeninivorans
(Lincoln University, 2012)
The bulk of microbial fuel cell work has been conducted on prokaryotic microorganisms, with eukaryotes considered too sluggish. Access to the electron transport chain in the mitochondrion appeared to be the limiting factor. ...
Studies on the effect of storage of beet (Beta vulgaris) for ethanol production
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1987)
High oil prices in the 1970's stimulated interest in production of fuel ethanol from beet and since by extending storage of beet, expenditure on ethanol plants could be reduced. Trials were undertaken to determine storage ...
Flux balance analysis to model microbial metabolism for electricity generation
(Lincoln University, 2013)
Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are bioelectrochemcial devices that possess a similar design to a fuel cell, with an anode and a cathode connected through an electrical circuit. Unlike fuel cells, MFCs use microorganisms as ...
Production of low-alcohol beverages using dietary epigenetic modifiers : A dissertation submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the Degree of Master of Science in Food Innovation at Lincoln University
(Lincoln University, 2020)

Antioxidant activity evaluation of dietary flavonoid hyperoside using Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model
Oxidative stress leads to various diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and even cancer. The dietary flavonol glycoside, hyperoside (quercetin-3-O-galactoside), exerts health ...
A nutrient dependant switch explains mutually exclusive existence of meiosis and mitosis initiation in budding yeast
Nutrients from living environment are vital for the survival and growth of any organism. Budding yeast diploid cells decide to grow by mitosis type cell division or decide to create unique, stress resistant spores by meiosis ...
Modelling bistable systems: a new model for meiosis initiation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and an investigation of the bistable switch of meiotic-mitotic initiation
(Lincoln University, 2014)
Living cells process diverse information received from the environment and make important decisions to undergo cellular processes such as differentiation, cell growth, division and apoptosis. The complex information ...
