Sugar Rush: Effects of Sugar Concentration on Cellular Respiration in Baker`s Yeast

Shanequa Neal, Miah McKinney, Caitlin Newton, Cooper Miller, Austinn Leone


Yeast is a single-celled organism that needs to perform cellular respiration to survive. We asked ourselves whether or not a higher sugar concentration would effect, particularly increase, CO2 output. Our results supported out hypothesis and showed that indeed, a higher sugar concentration will increase CO2 production. Ultimately increasing ATP production and growth rates.
