Abstract

Experimental evolution is one approach used to address a broad range of questions related to evolution and adaptation to strong selection pressures. Experimental evolution of diverse microbial and viral systems has routinely been used to study new traits and behaviors and also to dissect mechanisms of rapid evolution. This protocol describes the practical aspects of experimental evolution with yeast grown in chemostats, including the setup of the experiment and sampling methods as well as best laboratory and record-keeping practices.
