is yeast a bacteria?

“Yeast is a fungus that grows as a single cell, rather than as a mushroom,” says Laura Rusche, associate professor of biological sciences. Though each yeast organism is made up of just one cell, yeast cells live together in multicellular colonies.

As a result, they cannot be classified as bacteria and instead belong to the fungi group. Yeast is a fungus that grows as a single cell, not as a mushroom.

Despite the fact that each yeast organism is made up of only one cell, yeast cells coexist in multicellular colonies.
