UV-sensitive yeast?

Post by ZCH » Thu Oct 29, 2009 10:29 am

Hi i am an advanced higher biology student and for my investigation i am using UV-sensitive yeast. I have been trying to find out general information on this strain of yeast. I have searched online but i havent found much! I was wondering if anyone knew of any websites which would be helpful or know anything about UV-sensitive yeast ? If you do it would really help me in writing up my investigation.

And will you tell us, what strain do you have? Or are we waiting for your best man?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

You are lucky one

if are you using Saccharomyces (what I can only guess, as you are a dumb), the SGD can help you a lot, there is lot of mutants related to their respective genes.
But also other resources are listed, so pick one, which helps best ;)

The strain which i am using is Saccharomyces cerevisiae. But there was no need to call me "a dumb" and i do not understand your comment on "are we waiting for your best man?". But thanks for the website link.

The best man is from the series Friends :lol: anyway, this is species, not a strain.
