Clumpy yeast

Tue Dec 7 15:27:08 EST 1993

Hello to all netters,

A number of us in the lab have been working with yeast in the lab,
strain JPY201's, and sometimes during growth O/N or for just 4 hours,
the cells just clump together.  We are unable to determine what is
the cause of this 'clumping' and it has been a pain for us when we
perform mating assays on some of these cultures.  Does anyone have
any experience with this and any possible remedies?
