Yeast Genome Mapped!

I just read a Yahoo! news story that the yeast genome has been mapped. They say it could lead to better beer. There are so many different strains available, I wonder if this will show how much actual variation there is among the different strains. I mean is the Munich lager that much different from the Bavarian lager, for example? You can read the (short) story here.

  1. I'm only beginning to understand by experience how much the yeast actually effects the beer.
