As for a practical manual for methods and strategies, our lab relies
on the fairly recent "Guide to Yeast Genetics and Molecular Biology:
Methods in Enzymology" edited by Christine Guthrie and Gerald Fink,
published by Academic Press, ISBN 0-12-182095-5 (paperback).  This
book has a lot of very useful molecular genetic and biochemical
techniques coverig subjects that will be useful to any novice or
seasoned yeast biologist.  Mark Hochstrasser here at Univ of Chicago
works on the ubiquitin protein degradation system in yeast, and is
recently from Alex Varshavsky's lab at MIT.  His lab number is
(312)-702-2117 and the FAX number for his department is 702-0439.  His
e-mail address is hoc1 at midway.uchicago.edu, but I don't know if he
reads e-mail.
