Is anyone using the Pichia system for expression and purification
heterologous proteins.

Please reply if you have any experience with Pichia.

Do you get more protein than Saccharomyces?
Is the secreted (alpha-factor pre-pro signal peptide) system useful.
Is it as easy to work with as Saccharomyces?
What are the best vectors?
Any disadvantages?
