Abstract

Recent advances in biotechnology of methanol-utilizing yeasts are briefly summarized. The emphasis is given to production of some fine and commercial chemicals such as formaldehyde, formate, hydrogen peroxide, dihydroxyacetone, ATP, FAD as well as proteins, specifically alcohol oxidase. The advantages of mutants and recombinants derived from methylotrophic yeasts for efficient production of various useful materials are demonstrated.
