McClean: Yeast Nomenclature
S. cerevisiae researchers have a systematic approach for describing genotypes of yeast strains. We need to follow this system when writing papers, protocols, and when entering yeast strains into the lab database.
Yeast nomenclature is covered well in the articles listed in the references, so I won't recapitulate all of the details here. You should refer to these references when you have questions. I will just list some of the common conventions that you might need when entering strains into the lab database.
Please feel free to post comments, questions, or improvements to this protocol. Happy to have your input!
