generally gal- means that the strain does not grow on galactose. Most gal-
strains out there are either gal4, gal11 or gal3 (personal impression - no
statistics). Conversely Gal+ means that the starin is (at least marginally
utilize galactose) and has intact (more or less) Gal4p/Gal11p/Gal80/82p
system.
