Highlights in this week's Molecular Biology and Evolution The baker's yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been associated with human activities for thousands of years, being the primary biological agent in baking, brewing, winemaking and other fermentation processes. It is also one of the most important model organisms in molecular biology and genetics research. For a long time, the history and evolution of this important yeast has been a completely mystery, but recent advances in genome...

Brown University Mating and meiosis – the specialized cell division that reduces the number of chromosomes in a cell – are related, but in most yeasts they are regulated separately. Not so in Candida lusitaniae, where the two programs work in unison, according to a new study in Nature. Comparison with other species suggests that this fusion may support C. lusitaniae’s “haploid lifestyle” of maintaining only one set of chromosomes in each cell. From a biological point of view,...

Scientists Discover Aneuploidy In Single-celled Organisms
2013-08-14 14:57:39

University of Luxembourg Baker's yeast is a popular test organism in biology. Yeasts are able to duplicate single chromosomes reversibly and thereby adapt flexibly to environmental conditions. Scientists from the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) of the University of Luxembourg, in collaboration with colleagues from the US Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) in Seattle, have now systematically studied the genetics of this process, which biologists refer to as aneuploidy. The...

Rapidly isolate high molecular weight DNA using AMRESCO’s Yeast Genomic DNA Purification Kit that utilizes a non-enzymatic lysis buffer and is free of phenol, glass beads and capacity restrictive columns. Solon, Ohio (PRWEB) June 24, 2013 The sturdy yeast cell wall is a formidable barrier to the extraction of this model organism’s cellular contents, including its genomic DNA. Conventional methods for breaching the cell wall and isolating DNA are both time- and labor-intensive, may...
