Investigate how one can possibly substitute standard baker's yeast, making it possible for users to bake vitamin A-enriched loaves of bread (Golden Bread). Manipulate Saccharomyces cerevisiae and its metabolic pathway, and understand the importance of genetic redundancy when engineering a synthetic system.
