You can order the strain from Mortimer. The Yeast Genetic Stock Center
ordering information is included below. Contact them for more
information. Its not a lot of money, US$10 per strain or if they must
send an invoice a minumum of US$25.
The strain you are interested in might be one of these:
STRAIN GENOTYPE SOURCE
X2180-1Aa a SUC2 mal mel gal2 CUP1 RKM
X2180-1Balpha alpha SUC2 mal mel gal2 CUP1 RKM
P.S. I will soon be providing the YGSC catalog online via Internet
Gopher from genome-gopher.stanford.edu.
ORDERING STRAINS FROM THE YGSC
To order strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae from the Yeast Genetic
Stock Center, specify in writing the strain designation(s) and locus
or the category in which the strains are to be found in the catalogue.
Telephone requests will be accepted only if special circumstances
exist. FAXED requests are welcome. Should the strain(s) sent not
revive or be otherwise unstable, contact us for a replacement.
A fee of $10.00 per strain for non-profit organizations ($50.00 for
industrial concerns) will be charged users of the Yeast Genetic Stock
Center. Minimum invoicing is $25.00. Payment may be enclosed with
the request; otherwise an invoice will be sent with the strains. Make
checks payable to: Regents of the University of California.
Inquiries should be directed to Rebecca Contopoulou or to Robert

In additon to the strains in the collection at the YGSC, a number of
other non-genetically characterized strains of S. cerevisiae, such as
several brewing and wine yeasts as well as representatives of other
genera of yeasts are available. We urge you to contact the YGSC with
any questions regarding these and other strains not listed in the
