Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Question
I am editing a middle school text book and there is a statement that says all fungi are made up of hyphae and produce hyphae. From what I have read and from what I have learned Saccharomyces Cerevisiae do not form hyphae, but are they made up of hyphae? I am editing for scientific accuracy so an "always" statement throws up a red flag. Any help would be great.

Thanks,

Jeff

Hi Jeff,

Generally speaking, filamentous (hyphae producing) fungi are molds while yeasts do not form hyphae, they are unicellular fungi. While there are some exceptions to that generalization, S. cerevisae reproduces by budding, not by hyphae. Hope that helps.

Al
