Yeast Taxonomy Workshop ISSY32
Perugia, September 16, 2015 – Hotel Giò, Perugia Congress Centre
ROOM 2/3 – GROUND FLOOR, Start 16.40 at the end of the Session 5.
During the Yeast Taxonomy workshop that was held in Utrecht last April, yeast taxonomy was discussed genus by genus, considering the changing nomenclature (the ‘One Fungus =One name’ rule), new species and genera that are described, and the use of molecular and phylogenimcs based phylogenies. In Utrecht several conclusions were made, but some debates remain ongoing. A web seminar concerning the possible future of “The Yeasts, a Taxonomic study” as a dynamic on line book occurred too.
The meeting “Discussion meeting on Taxonomy of Yeasts, including the future of ‘The Yeasts’” (chaired by Dr. Teun Boekhout) was scheduling as the continuation of the Utrecht workshop. During this meeting some further arguments relating to specific taxonomic problems could be faced and the discussion about the Yeasts book could arrive to a solution.
