Yeast as a Versatile System for the Expression of Heterologous Proteins

Because of its simplicity of genetic manipulation, faster generation time, availability of integrative and episomal vectors, and promoters that can be simply turned on and off using simple chemical moieties, the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been widely employed for heterologous protein production. Furthermore, as the simplest eukaryote, it has various benefits in the expression of…
