Abstract

Understanding the biology of complex systems is facilitated by comparing them with simpler organisms. Budding and fission yeasts provide ideal model systems for eukaryotic cell biology. Although they differ from one another in terms of a range of features, these yeasts share powerful genetic and genomic tools. Classical yeast genetics remains an essential element in discovering and characterizing the genes that make up a eukaryotic cell.
