The longevity in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae: A comparison of two approaches for assessment the lifespan.


Longevity of the selected "longevity mutants" of yeast was studied using two methods. The standard method was based on counting the number of daughter cells produced. Modification of that method allowed for establishing the length of life expressed in units of time. It appeared that all the studied "deletion longevity mutants" showed a statistically… (More)
