Abstract

The ability to visualize cellular events by linking them to color or fluorescence changes has been an invaluable tool for biology. We describe a novel plasmid-borne color marker whose expression in yeast leads to purple-colored cells that are also brightly fluorescent. This dominant marker provides a useful tool for rapidly screening plasmid maintenance using a visual or fluorescence assay in both Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Candida albicans.
