Bacteria and yeast microbiota in milk kefir grains from different Italian regions.
Kefir grains are a unique symbiotic association of different microrganisms, mainly lactic acid bacteria, yeasts and occasionally acetic acid bacteria, cohabiting in a natural polysaccharide and aExpand

Production of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) by yeasts isolated from the ascocarps of black (Tuber melanosporum Vitt.) and white (Tuber magnatum Pico) truffles
Twenty-nine yeast strains were isolated from the ascocarps of black and white truffles (Tubermelanosporum Vitt. and Tubermagnatum Pico, respectively), and identified using a polyphasic approach.Expand
