Introduction

  • Microorganisms are susceptible to temperature changes due to their inability to move, thus they must have physiological means to adapt to these changing environments.
  • The temperature situation tested in this study was the effect of cold temperatures, termed cold shock.
  • Recent studies have also looked at cold shock in yeast but, used a method of growing them in batch cultures.
  • In this study, yeast were grown in chemostats to keep the conditions more constant.
  • The yeast's adaptation to cold shock is determined by looking at changes in the transcriptome.
