  1. Tolerance scores for Saccharomyces strains grown in plates containing YNB, 100 mM glucose and 1.5 mg ml−1 furfural. Strains were scored according to the duration of lag phase. A growth lag of 0 to 10 h was scored 4, 10 to 15 h scored 3, 15 to 20 h scored 2 and a lag phase of over 20 h scored 1 point. No observed growth was scored 0. Scores shown are the average ± standard deviation of six separate growth incubations. Strains with an average score greater than 2.9 and a standard deviation score less than 1.5 are in bold texts.
