Exploring Cellular Respiration by Measuring CO2 Production from Saccharomyces cerevisiae Aerobic Respiration

Written by Hayden Introduction Most eukaryotic organisms require glucose for the first step in their metabolism (Ozcan, et. al.), and Saccharomyces cerevisiae is no exception. This strain of yeast was used in this experiment to examine cellular respiration at different temperature levels and with carbon sources other than glucose. Yeast is used to study metabolism because there is a lot of information on this particular strain of yeast because it is widely used for baking, brewing, and other techniques for […]
