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????
