GENOME MAINTENANCE MECHANISMS, CANCER, AND AGING:
What is Fission yeast? Fission yeast is highly amenable to genetic and biochemical analyses to understand basic cellular functions. Wide variety of genetic manipulations available in fission yeast readily allow you to determine functions of genes and proteins involved. Since many of cellular mechanisms in Fission yeast are similar to those of humans, the information quickly obtained by yeast studies can be extrapolate to human systems.
