Hi, John.
Please try "http://flosun.salk.edu/users/forsburg/pcr.html".
The title of this page is;
[ Colony PCR for discrimination between homologous
and nonhomologous integration of markers in S. pombe ]
In this page, the author says "Do not boil the (cell) 
suspensions! (befor pcr) " (^_^). I believe it's useful 
for you.
BTW I also have web-space at;
In this site I collect several "yeast" sites, offering
many useful information including experimental protocols
using yeast. Please try it too !
