Abstract

While yeast flocculation is a continuing source of research, no international method has been accepted to monitor the progress of cell flocculation. This presentation will report on previous, existing, and potential methods for yeast flocculation assay. We will review the Helm and Burns methods and derivatives, adherence and kinetic methods, and absorbance techniques. Standard methods will also be reviewed. In addition, measures of cell wall hydrophobicity and zymolectin 'density' will be discussed. Finally, research with the TRAC method of monitoring flocculation gene expression will be presented.
