The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is clearly the most ideal eukaryotic microorganism for biological studies. The
awesome power of yeast genetics has become legendary and is the envy of those who work with higher eukaryotes. The complete sequence of its genome has proved to be extremely useful as a reference towards the sequences of human and other higher eukaryotic genes. Furthermore, the ease of genetic manipulation of yeast allows its use for conveniently analyzing and functionally dissecting gene products from other eukaryotes.
