Saccharomyces

(sak'ă-rō-mī'sēz),
A genus of budding yeasts (family Saccharomycetaceae); an ascomycete. Saccharomyces cerevisiae is used to produce brewer's yeast and ethanol. Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a very rare pathogen in humans.

Etymology: Gk, sakcharon + mykes, fungus
a genus of yeast fungi that causes such diseases as bronchitis, moniliasis, and pharyngitis.

Saccharomyces

a genus of unicellular yeast fungi, which is in the group ASCOMYCOTA. Most species of Saccharomyces ferment a wide range of sugars. Some species, such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae are used in the manufacture of bread and as ‘brewer's yeast’ in beer making. They may occur in the form of simple, budding cells or as pseudomycelium (chain of cells). Each ASCUS contains one to four rounded or ovate SPORES.
