True? Or not true? I read some stuff about yeast integrating plasmids or part of plasmids into their DNA, but do they have plasmids themselves???

Cheers,

you mean like the WT yeasts? Probably they can have some, if is it preferable for them, but otherwise it's discarded as in bacteria;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
