Beer Yeast Domestication...

A fascinating article on the history of yeast domestication:

The Domestication of Beer Yeast - American Homebrewers Association

What I find most interesting here is that basically brewing yeast has become dependent upon humans to survive. Without brewers these particular yeast strains would not continue to exist, because they have lost the ability to reproduce other than asexually. So I guess it is a symbiotic relationship.
