TU Delft starts online platform with science storiesDelft researchers do their research in all kinds of interesting ways: they do experiments in labs, they build and test models and prototypes, and do field work all over the world. All of these scientists have their own tale to tell, and more and more of these so-called stories of science are being written down by our Delft faculties. On www.tudelft.nl/stories a wide selection of these stories is brought together, conveniently arranged in topics and themes. This collection will continue to grow steadily, and stories will be actively linked to current events. Stay tuned if you want to know more about our science, and our scientists!
All Pilsner yeast strains originate from a single yeast ancestorPilsner yeast, the well-known micro-organism that brewers use every year to make hundreds of billions of litres of pilsner and other lagers, came into being 500 years ago through an accidental encounter between two species of yeast. The yeast strains now used to brew pilsner can all be traced back to that time. This is the conclusion reached by TU Delft researchers based on extensive DNA analysis.
