The Yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae: An Assay Organism for Environmental Mutagens
- 94 Downloads
The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has come to be an important vehicle for transferring the vast amount of knowledge learned from the molecular biology of pro-karyotes to the study of the cells of higher organisms. Yeast is a true eukaryote, well understood genetically, with both haploid and diploid cell cycles. Meiosis takes place in the diploid cell without the prior differentiation of elaborate fruiting bodies or other sexual paraphernalia.
