Efficient transformation of the osmotolerant yeast Zygosaccharomyces rouxii by electroporation

J Microbiol Methods. 2003 Nov;55(2):481-4. doi: 10.1016/s0167-7012(03)00197-0.


A rapid and simple electroporation method to transform osmotolerant yeast Zygosaccharomyces rouxii has been developed and conditions for efficient transformation of mutants derived from different Z. rouxii wild-type strains optimized.
