Cytogenetic demonstration of mitotic chromosomes in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
- 49 Downloads
A cytogenetic study of the nuclear material of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as it appears during mitosis was undertaken using a technique which combines light and electron microscopic examination of spheroplasts. Condensation of chromatin into separate chromosomes is observed. The most frequent chromosome number counted is 18.
