Long-term storage: Add 10% Glycerol to overnight cultures store at -80C. Do 
not snap-freeze.

Medium term: Can be stored as slants on YPD agar in airtight 1oz bottles
(room temp).

Short-term: Can be kept for several weeks streaked on YPD plates at 4C
(NB some genotypes don't store well like this, notably sod mutants).
