The budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has emerged as a versatile and robust model system of eukaryotic genetics. Mutant screening and segregation analysis are simpler and easier to perform in yeast than in multicellular organisms; and fundamental eukaryotic biology, such as cell cycle control and alternation of generations, is wellconserved throughout eukaryotic taxa. Yeast has a high endogenous rate of homologous recombination, and ahost of extrachromosomal DNA elements can stably… CONTINUE READING
