Yeast publishes original articles and reviews on the most significant developments of research with unicellular fungi, including innovative methods of broad applicability. It is essential reading for those wishing to keep up to date with this rapidly moving field of yeast biology.

Topics covered include:

  • biochemistry and molecular biology
  • biodiversity and taxonomy
  • biotechnology
  • cell and developmental biology
  • ecology and evolution
  • genetics and genomics
  • metabolism and physiology
  • pathobiology
  • synthetic and systems biology
  • tools and resources

In addition, the journal contains two invited review series, Budding Topics, which offers an insightful view of the work of young PI's and Yeast Primers, focusing on new non-conventional species and species communities. The journal publishes one special issue per year on a selected leading topic in yeast biology.

The journal also promotes the collegiate activities of the yeast research community by publishing announcements of Meetings and Courses, as well as the Abstracts of major conferences.
