Rate of spontaneous mutation in yeast - Yeast (Jan/20/2005 )

Does anybody know the rate of spontaneous mutation in S.cervesiae?



Try these references:

Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2004 Dec 17;325(3):928-33.
spontaneous mutagenesis in haploid and diploid Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Genetics. 2001 Oct;159(2):441-52.

in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.


hi mikew,

thanks for the references - they have been very useful!
