Abstract

I proposed to use graphene as a biosensor to observe the life processes of yeast cells in situ. When yeast is maintained in an anaerobic environment, it produces fermentation, and delicious wine. However, when oxygen is present, yeast undergoes a preferable (for it) electron transport pathway, the byproduct of which can ruin wine. By growing yeast on graphene biosensors, we hope to be able to detect these changes.
