How to grow Yeast

submitted by: Singer Instruments

How to grow / culture yeast on agar or in YPD:

We show you how to prepare fresh cultures of yeast from previously grown agar plates.

Spruce up your old yeast cultures by replating onto fresh media or liquid YPD, or select colonies of interest to be expanded.

How the ER shapes up and ships out

submitted by: JCB
The endoplasmic reticulum is a complex network of interconnected membrane tubules and cisternae. West et al. use electron tomography to reveal the full diversity of ER structures present in budding yeast and how these structures pass from the mother cell into the bud. This biosights episode presents the paper by West et al. from the April 18, 2011, issue of The Journal of Cell Biology, and includes an interview with senior author Gia Voeltz (University of Colorado, Boulder).
