    The 3rd Conference on Physiology of Yeasts and Filamentous Fungi (PYFF3) belongs to a meeting series organised by the Microbial Physiology Section of the European Federation of Biotechnology (EFB). More than 200 participants from 32 countries around the world participate in the conference. The aim of the meeting is to bring together scientists from academic research institutes and industrial laboratories to discuss the latest achievements in research on physiology of eukaryotic microbes. Yeasts and filamentous fungi are important in a number of biotechnical processes including food processing, brewing, and production of protein products such as industrial enzymes and therapeutic proteins, and production of metabolites such as antibiotics, polymer precursors and biofuels. The current trend of using lignocellulose biomass as raw material for new products in biorefineries has made yeasts and filamentous fungi more important than before. The PYFF3 conference covers comparative analysis of the expanding genomic sequence information in yeasts and filamentous fungi, as well as the experimental systems biology approaches taken to understand the global cellular regulation cues. Bioprocess-level analysis of production processes based on yeasts and filamentous fungi is also discussed, including its correlation with the physiological knowledge obtained with systems-wide analysis. The main financial supporters of the meeting are: EFB Microbial Physiology Section, Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS) and companies using yeasts and filamentous fungi in industrial processes.
