About this book

This advanced textbook uses a case study approach, with the yeast Saccharomyces as the model genetic organism, to explain the theory and practice of molecular genetic analysis.

...Students new to yeast genetics and those of us keeping abreast of fusing disciplines should add this publication to our reading list... (The Biochemist, 4 October 2002) " a useful addition to the literature " (Biologist, Vol.50. No.2, 2003) "...a valuable addition to the reference library of any research laboratory at universities, research institutes and the industry." (Acta Biotechnologica, Vol.23, No.2 3, 2003) "...The aim of every teacher is to inspire students to move down from the stands, step up to the plate, and start hitting on their own. This book is a wonderful tool to help in that quest." (Cell Biology Education, 16 June 2003)
