haploid vs diploid

Hey there!

I was just reading through a paper that was attempting to characterize a
novel gene and its protein.  I noticed that in some assays a haploid
strain is used but a diploid is used in others.

Are there any strategic benefits to using a haploid vs a diploid in
assessing growth or DNA replication?

Any help would be appreciated
Thanks much!
