Best expression system for (plant) protein expression in yeast

Lambda-YES is a great single-copy plasmid with a Gal-Inducible Promoter
and a URA marker..  we use it all the time here. As far as transformation
is concerned, electroporation a la E. coli is fairly effective..  we have
a protocol or two if you're interested.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice; in practice, however, there is no similarity

PS: You know the part about removing the nospam from the end of my email don't you? I hate to do it but I have gotten some TRULY XXX offensive spams lately and can't tolerate them anymore.
