fact is, high probability the yeast itself is not 35 million years old. it might have fallen off the beard of the guy who dusted off the bones

or Jaapie's beard. he's finding yeast everywhere.

Quite some time ago,some archaeologists were sifting through the dirt from a dig & found viable pollen grains. Tough lil buggers. I got to wondering just how tough yeast cells could be if enough were clumped together over so many millennia?

I wonder exactly what that narrow band of sugars are that the yeast can metabolize? The spicy thing sounds like the French saison yeast,3711...
