Probably the best source for comprehensive info on Pichia is Phillips
Petroleum, who owns the license for commercial use of the Pichia

and may be obtained from:
L. V. Benningfield
250 Patent Library Bldg.
Phillips Petroleum Co.
Bartlesville, OK 74004
The manual has pictures, vectors, and a number of reprints of articles
describing industrial applications of Pichia to biopharmaceutical
