Focusing on Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the second edition of Yeast Gene Analysis represents a major reworking of the original edition, with many completely new chapters and major revisions to all previous chapters. Originally published shortly after completion of the yeast genome sequence, the new edition covers many of the major genome-wide strategies that have been developed since then such as microarray analysis of transcription, synthetic gene array studies, protein microarrays and chemical genetic approaches. It represents a valuable resource for any research laboratory using budding yeast as their experimental system in which to identify new yeast gene functions. The chapters are written in a readable style with useful background information, technical tips and specific experimental protocols included as appropriate, enabling both the novice and the experienced yeast researcher to adopt new procedures with confidence.
  • New chapters on: Strain construction; genome-wide two-hybrid approaches; use of microarrays for transcript analysis; real-time analysis of chromosome behaviour and FRET; synthetic gene array technology and protein arrays; chemical genomics and yeast prions; RNA gene analysis and mitochondrial gene function analysis; phylogenetic footprinting; discovering human gene function and predicting yeast gene function

About the Author

Alistair Brown has led an active research group in yeast molecular biology for over 15 years. Having started at Glasgow University, his group is now based at Aberdeen University, studying gene function and regulation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and the control of morphogenesis in Candida albicans. The Aberdeen Candida Group is now one of the largest academic groups studying the molecular physiology of C. albicans.

Mick Tuite is a Professor of Molecular Biology in the Department of Biosciences at the University of Kent, UK He has published over 100 research papers and reviews in the area of yeast molecular biology and genetics and is a member of the editorial board of the journals Yeast and Molecular Microbiology.
