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 methodscurrently 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-likeparticles, 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.
John R. Johnston is at University of Strathclyde.

Editorial Reviews

`The distinguished collection of authors are often pioneers in their subject area and so the guidance is both authoritative and helpful. Overall this is a useful addition to the series, with ready access to standard lab protocols.'Alan Wheals, Society for General Microbiology, November 1996
