The Yeast Lipid Conference (YLC) is an international scientific meeting held biannually. These conferences promote information exchange and free discussion between scientists working on, or interested in any aspect of yeast or fungal lipids. YLC 2019 will cover topics ranging from metabolism of phospholipids and sterols, protein-membrane interactions, to yeasts as a platform for lipid production and a model for studies of molecular mechanisms involved in human pathogenesis.
