Volunteer: Lorena Donzella

Lorena Donzella is an Early Stage Researcher in the ITN YEASTDOC and a PhD student in Microbial Biotechnology at the University of Minho in Portugal and at the University College Cork in Ireland. The aim of her project is to improve the performance of yeast cell factory strains by focusing on the uptake and utilisation of sugars from inexpensive commercial substrates, such as lignocellulosic biomass. She has always been intrigued by the huge potential of yeasts which provide a range of valuable products and she believes that industrial biotechnology is the key to obtain new interesting yeast strains with sustainable applications.

FEMS Journals and Open Access

Embracing an Open Future

All but one of the FEMS journals are now fully open access (OA), with one journal, FEMS Microbiology Letters remaining a subscription journal with free-to-publish and OA options. Open access is key to supporting the FEMS mission of disseminating high quality research as widely as possible: when high quality, peer reviewed sound science is open access, anyone, anywhere in the world with an internet connection, can read it.
