The Natural Diversity and Ecology of Fission Yeast

Daniel C Jeffares. Yeast. .

While the fission yeast is a powerful model of eukaryote biology, there have been few studies of quantitative genetics, phenotypic or genetic diversity. Here I survey the small collection of fission yeast diversity research. I discuss what we can infer about the ecology and origins of Schizosaccharomyces pombe from microbiology field studies and the few strains that have been collected.

Keywords: Schizosaccharomyces; fission yeast; genetic diversity.
