The budding index of Saccharomyces cerevisiae deletion strains identifies genes important for cell cycle progression. Academic Article uri icon


  • Budding marks initiation of cell division in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Consequently, cell cycle progression can be monitored by the fraction of budded cells (budding index) in a proliferating cell population. We determined the budding index of a large collection of deletion strains, to systematically identify genes involved in cell cycle progression.
