To understand the genetic basis of changes in strain physiology during industrial fermentation, and the corresponding roles these genes play in strain performance, we employed a barcoded yeast deletion library to assess genome-wide strain fitness across a simulated industrial fermentation regime. Our results demonstrate the utility of Bar-seq to assess fermentation associated stresses in yeast populations under industrial conditions. We find that mutant population diversity is maintained through multiple seed trains, enabling for large scale fermentation selective pressures to act upon the community. We identify specific deletion mutants that were enriched in all processes, independent of the cultivation conditions, which include MCK1, RIM11, MRK1, and YGK3 that encode homologues of mammalian glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK-3). Further, we show that significant changes in the population diversity during fed-batch cultivations reflect the presence of significant external stresses, such as the accumulation of the fermentative byproduct ethanol. The mutants that were lost during the time of most extreme population selection suggest that specific biological processes may be required to cope with these specific stresses. Overall our...Continue Reading
