The completion of the budding yeast genome sequencing project has made it possible to determine not only the total number of genes, but also the exact number of genes of a particular type 1-3. As a consequence, we now know exactly how many protein kinases are encoded by the yeast genome, a number of considerable interest because of the importance of protein phosphorylation in the control of so many cellular processes.
