Yeast_Biology

In order to gain some useful knowledge about S. cerevisiae as a model organism, we decided to periodically study a chapter from the page bellow:

The chapters selected from study were:

  • 3 Yeast MetabolismBR 5 The Yeast GenomeBR 10 Yeast Growth and Cell CycleBR 12 Gene Expression in YeastBR

    • Fundamentals about the yeast’s biology

    13 Signaling and Regulatory Circuits in Yeast
    • More advanced cell & molecular biology, related to current hot topics in systems biology

    4 Yeast Molecular Techniques
    • Fundamentals about the manipulation in the lab

Forthcoming Homework

The next session for our Journal Club on Yeast is planned for

  • FRIDAY 26th of October, 11.30am,

and will cover chapter 10 of the manual:

  • 10 Yeast Growth and Cell Cycle
  • 10.1 Vegetative Reproduction in Yeast
  • 10.2 The Yeast Cell Cycle
  • 10.3 Sexual Reproduction
