The process from yeast isolation to their use in laboratory experiments is lengthy. Historically, Saccharomyces strains were easily obtained by sampling alcoholic fermentation processes or other substrates associated with human activity in which Saccharomyces was heavily enriched. In contrast, wild Saccharomyces yeasts are found in complex microbial communities and small population sizes, making isolation challenging. We have overcome this problem by enriching yeast on media favoring the growth of Saccharomyces over other microorganisms. The isolation process is usually followed by molecular characterization that allows the strain identification. Finally, yeast isolated from domestic or wild environments need to be genetically manipulated before they can be used in laboratory experiments. © 2017 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press.
