The Phaff Yeast Culture Collection is one of the largest public collections of wild yeasts in the world, with over 14,000 strains belonging to 1,500 different species, including upwards of 200 novel species. These yeasts are used by academic, industry and government agency researchers for basic studies (ecology, taxonomy, comparative genomics) and applied studies (food ingredients, biofuels, fine and bulk chemicals).

Your support enables us to maintain the yeast collection and database, upgrade lab facilities, train students, and share our love of yeast with the world through outreach programs.
