Abstract
One of the most common procedures in microbiology is trying to isolate and work with specific microorganisms or even specific strains. This might be essential in medicine to demonstrate the presence of a specific pathogen and thus adopt the appropriate therapy or, for research purposes, in order to simplify the system that needs to be investigated. However, the artificial constraint obtained under experimental conditions is completely different from what occurs in nature.<br>In natural environments, microorganisms often share the same space and they establish complex interaction that can be both intra and interspecies. These interactions might result in the assembly of specific structures such as biofilm or floccule that guarantee protection against abiotic and biotic stress, or might involve the establishment of metabolic connections. <br>In this project, these metabolic interconnections will be investigated.<br>Specifically, the aim of this project is to determine synthetic cross-feeding consortia between S. cerevisiae auxotrophic strains. This will imply a systematic large-scale investigation of different partners aimed to find positive combinations of strains able to grow together. <br>
