In recent years, yeast genetics has become an extremely useful area of research, not only because these microbes are of industrial, biotechnological, and medical importance, but also because they are listed as modelsfor the behaviour of animal cells. The sixth and final volume of the exceptional Yeasts Series this book is a fully edited, research-level treatise on yeast genetics. Focusing on the molecular biology and genetics of yeasts, the book includes complete, up-to-date coverage of recombinant DNA genetics, genetics of industrial yeasts, as well as mating and mating-type interconversion. This detailed and informative volume will be of value to microbiologists, biotechnologists, molecular biologists, and cell biologists searching for the latest finding in this important area of research.
