Fermentation performance of the S. cerevisiae strain CBS 6412-13A catabolizing glycerol via the ‘DHA pathway’ (DHA) and in an isogenic strain expressing Cjadinii FPS1 (DHA FPS1). The shake flask experiments were conducted in synthetic media (SMGbuff). Cells were grown in 500-mL Erlenmeyer flasks with 50 mL filling volume. Glycerol (6% v/v) was used as the sole carbon source. Mean values and standard deviations from three independent experiments are shown
