A review of phenotypes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

39 Scopus citations


A summary of previously defined phenotypes in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisae is presented. The purpose of this review is to provide a compendium of phenotypes that can be readily screened to identify pleiotropic phenotypes associated with primary or suppressor mutations. Many of these phenotypes provide a convenient alternative to the primary phenotype for following a gene, or as a marker for cloning a gene by genetic complementation. In many cases a particular phenotype or set of phenotypes can suggest a function for the product of the mutated gene.
