Researchers at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem genetically engineered Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast to make it form benzoic acid. The group also analyzed yeast transformed with other expression vectors for production of the benzoic acid methyl transferase enzyme in S. cerevisiae. One was a constitutive triosephosphate isomerase promoter-based system, the other a copper-inducible CUP1 promoter system. Both produced methyl benzoate.
