MOLECULAR & CELLULAR BIOLOGY OF S. POMBE & OTHER YEASTS

November 6 - 19, 1996

APPLICATION DEADLINE: 15th July 1996

Fission yeast is often chosen as a model system for studies of cell and 
molecular biology.  This course is designed to introduce the basic 
genetic, molecular and cell biological techniques necessary for an 
investigator to adapt this system to their own laboratory/project.  
Topics include formal genetics and tetrad dissection, cytology including 
fluorescent and immunological techniques, transformation and gene 
replacement, plasmid recovery and cell fractionation.  Many of the 
experiments will exploit mutant strains affected in cell cycle or 
cytoskeleton.  Against this background it is planned to introduce 
several other yeast systems of industrial or pathological interest.  The 
Pichia system will be used for protein expression, Yarrowia for cell 
fractionation studies and Candida for hyphal transformation.  In 
addition to the laboratory component, invited speakers will address 
various aspects of the biology of these systems.
