General description

Yeast is an ideal eukaryotic microorganism for biochemical and genetic studies, particularly since its complete genome sequence became available. This Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Yeast Genetics Course Manual combines essential standard methods with the latest technologies. In this edition, most of the experiments have been revised and several new experiments and techniques have been added, including the 2-hybrid system, PCR-based methods, and isolation of chromatin.
