In this second edition of a widely used classic laboratory manual, leading experts utilize the tremendous progress and technological advances that have occurred during the last decade to create a completely new collection of not only the major basic techniques, but also advanced protocols for yeast research. Yeast Protocols, Second Edition contains 27 optimized and readily reproducible techniques suitable for both yeast researchers and investigators who wish to use yeast to study their favorite genes from other organisms. The authors provide detailed methods for the isolation of subcellular components, including organelles and macromolecules; for the basic cellular and molecular analysis specific for yeast cells; and for the creation of conditional mutant phenotypes that lend themselves to powerful genome manipulation. Additional protocols offer advanced approaches to study genetic interactions, DNA and chromatin metabolism, gene expression, as well as the foreign genes and gene products in yeast cells. The protocols follow the successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, each offering step-by-step laboratory instructions, an introduction outlining the principles behind the technique, lists of the necessary equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Cutting-edge and highly practical, Yeast Protocols, Second Edition offers researchers a collection of traditional and novel protocols essential for studying yeasts, as well as genes from other organisms
