is the website for the research laboratory of Ira Herskowitz, PhD
(deceased, 2003) at the University of California, San Francisco.
The lab studied basic scientific questions about the life cycle
of a prototypic eukaryotic cell, Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Although the lab's specialty was genetics, they also used biochemistry
and molecular biology to approach a number of problems. This site
provides useful techniques and information for doing yeast genetics.
