  Saccharomyces Species
Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a genetically tractable yeast which is closely related to Candida albicans.
As a consequence, Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a commonly used model yeast in fungal molecular research, including DNA sequence analysis [376], mechanism of action of [166, 373, 611, 1187, 1226, 1268] and resistance to [836, 1225, 1227, 1228, 1231, 1232, 1390, 1409] antifungal drugs, and the investigation of factors of pathogenicity, such as adhesion [1146].

  Saccharomyces cerevisiae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a species of budding yeast.
It is perhaps the most relevant yeast for mankind, both for its use since ancient times in baking and brewing, and for being one of the most intensively studied eukaryotic model organisms in molecular and cell biology, much like Escherichia coli as the model prokaryote.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells are round to ovoid, 5-10 Micrometres in diameter.

 Saccharomyces cerevisiae Summary
Among them, Saccharomyces cerevisiae is perhaps the biological model most utilized for decades in order for scientists to understand the molecular anatomy and physiology of eukaryotic cells, such as membrane and transmembrane receptors, cell cycle controls, and enzymes and proteins involved in signal transduction to the nucleus.
The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is similar to animal cells (e.g., similar length to the phases of its cell cycle, similarity of the chromosomal structures called telomeres).
Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells are round to ovoid, 5-10 micrometres in diameter.

Saccharomyces uvarum is one species of a genus which has an extensive history of use in the fermentation and food processing industry.
At the present time Saccharomyces is not used for the production of socalled specialty chemicals (e.g., antibiotics, culturable enzymes, etc.); however, these yeasts are used to produce alcohol for beverages and industrial purposes.
Saccharomyces uvarum is, under most conditions, a poorly sporogenous yeast most commonly used in the production of alcoholic beverages and vitamin assays.

 SACCHAROMYCES BOULARDII
Saccharomyces boulardii is a non-pathogenic yeast that is recognized to have probiotic effectiveness used alone and/or in combination with other probiotics to support digestion.
Saccharomyces boulardii is considered a non-pathogenic, non-colonizing baker's yeast species, which is very closely related to brewer's yeast also known as S. cervesiae.
The S. boulardii, although it is recognized as a yeast, is not related to the Candida species (Candida albicans, tropicalas, etc.), which can cause pathogenic infections in the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts.

An outstanding characteristic of members of Saccharomyces is their ability to convert sugar into carbon dioxide and alcohol by means of enzymes.
The yeasts used to ferment sugars in the manufacture of baked goods, beers, wines, distilled spirits, and industrial alcohols are all strains of one species, S. cerevisiae.
Approximately nine or 10 pure strains, with their subclassifications, are used for fermentation of grain mashes; these all belong to the type Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
