UP-PCR analysis and multilocus enzyme electrophoresis were used to characterize 37 strains of the sibling species Saccharomyces cerevisiae, S. bayanus, S. cariocanus, S. kudriavzevii, S. mikatae and S. paradoxus. The results demonstrate that both molecular approaches are useful for discriminating between these phenotypically indistinguishable Saccharomyces species. The data obtained are in excellent agreement with previously reported genetic analyses, sequencing of the 18S rRNA and ITS regions, and DNA-DNA reassociation data.
