  • How Yeast Populations Make the Cut

    04/15/2014

    Imagine that your dream is to be a professional basketball player.  Unfortunately for you, you are only five feet six inches tall and you can’t jump very high.  No matter how much you practice and work out, it is exceedingly unlikely you will be a starter for the Miami Heat. Now imagine instead that you are six feet tall with a reasonable vertical jump.  Here, with enough effort you have a shot at beating out the... Read...
  • Redesigning Yeast One Chromosome at a Time

    04/03/2014

    Everyone who reads our blog knows how awesome the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is.  Without this little workhorse we would almost certainly not understand ourselves as well as we do now.  It is an indispensable tool in figuring out how eukaryotes work. And of course yeast is much more than that.  It makes our bread fluffy and our drinks alcoholic.  It can be manipulated into making medicines like artemisinin, a powerful anti-malarial drug, or biofuels or whatever else...

  • Apply Now for the CSHL Yeast Genetics & Genomics Course

    03/31/2014

    For more than 40 years, the legendary Yeast Genetics & Genomics course has been taught each summer at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. (OK, the name didn’t include “Genomics” in the beginning…) The list of people who have taken the course reads like a Who’s Who of yeast research, including many of today’s leading scientists and two Nobel laureates (Randy Schekman in 1975 and Jim Rothman in 1985, who both won the 2013 Nobel Prize).  Now it’s your...

  • Silly Sod’s Two Jobs

    03/27/2014

    Most SGD users are probably too young to remember Saturday Night Live’s early years.  One very funny commercial parody involved Gilda Radner and Dan Aykroyd arguing over a product called Shimmer.  Gilda argues that it is a floor wax while Dan says it is a dessert topping.  In comes Chevy Chase to tell them that it is both.  Not quite as funny as Bassomatic, but still hilarious. In a new study, Tsang and coworkers show something... Read...
