About this book

This book describes and discusses experimental procedures used in a wide range of specialized topics within the genetics and molecular biology of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Contributions are by internationally-recognized experts in particular areas and represent up-to-date methods currently in use. Topics covered include DNA isolation, cloning, and expression vectors, cosmid cloning, construction and use of cDNA libraries, plasmid shuffling and mutant isolation, Ty insertional mutagenesis, high efficiency transformation, cell-free translation of mRNAs, Ty virus-like particles, and applications to industrial strains of yeast. Detailed protocols are clearly presented, with many additional practical tips, to assist both first-time and more experienced experimentalists.
