At present, I'm trying to determine the surface features of yeast with a
SPM but I have yet to find anything. SEM freeze fracture micrographs
have sugeested that yeast has a highly amorphous, and very smooth cell
wall, but I am having difficulty confirming this with the AFM. Could
anyone tell me if yeasts generally do have very smooth surfaces or if
they have investigated the surface of yeasts with a AFM????
