Advanced - For experienced high school and college classes; requires some technical skill.

This lab focuses on a strain of baker's yeast, modified to produce ß-carotene, a nutrient we naturally obtain from eating specific vegetables. In the body, ß-carotene is converted to vitamin A, which is crucial for several biological functions. Investigate how one can possibly substitute standard baker's yeast, making it possible for users to bake vitamin A-enriched loaves of bread.

This biology lab focuses on a strain of baker's yeast, modified to produce ß-carotene (VitaYeast), a nutrient we naturally obtain from eating specific vegetables. In the body, ß-carotene is converted to vitamin A, which is crucial for vision, the immune system, and other biological functions. 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. Kit includes enough materials for 24 students working in groups of 4. Note: Order the kit with the perishable materials included or with a prepaid coupon to request perishables later at your convenience. Contact us or return the coupon to request delivery of perishable materials.
