You have serveral vectors for drug resistance in yeast: G450 (I think I am
not wrong in the numbers), hygromycin, cycloheximide, belomycin, fleomycin
sulfometuron and perhaps some others.

The first three have been developped essentially in Dr A. Jimenez lab
in Spain. His e-mail is ajimenez at

I do not think that he has made a gene library with any of them. But perhaps
you can obtain a plasmid to construct the library.

I recommend you to make first a bibliographic research.

I hope this helps.
