I found an old book in our library about identifying yeast strains.
Basically it was a big list of phenotypes such as carbon source utilization,
vitamin requirements, AA requirements, nitrogen source utilization, and
a whole bunch of other things. Very nice, except for S. cerevisiae every
catagory had 'variable' listed.
Yup, there's polymorphism there :-)
(I guess that if you can't identify it, I must be sc)
