Identification and molecular characterization of yeast species from wineyards of Turkey

A new project, "Identification and molecular characterization of yeast species suitable for wine/alcohol fermentation from wineyards of Turkey" has been granted by the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock".
This two year project, started in June 2013 is coordinated by Prof. Nes'e Bilgin. The project aims to collect native wine yeast for the needs of industrial wine makers in Turkey which is currently import dependent.
