For yeast biology, the best bible is the Cold Spring Harbor series
on the molecular biology of hte yeast Saccharomyes.  The 1981 volumes
sit well thumbed on many shelves. Two out of the three volumes of the 
second edition are available from Cold Spring Harbor and they've been
promising number three for a couple of years now.  They are nice enough
to publish them in paperback as well as hardcover which makes them
more affordable.

I dont have any connection with CSH, I'm just waiting for Vol. 3!
