Mirus Bio welcomes Professor Chris Hittinger, Genetics, UW-Madison, who is one of the discoverers of Saccharomyces eubayanus, the wild parent of the main hybrid yeasts used in the brewing industry. He will talk about how yeasts are not only critical for one of Wisconsin’s favorite beverages, but also to many industries like the production of drugs, such as human insulin and producing biofuels.
Come enjoy good food, conversation and a lager on us!
