You can PCR yeast directly from colony or isolate DNA from liquid culture
by rapid release methods - protocols available in CPMB and in White yeast
methods book. I take 5-20 ug of genomic DNA per 100 ul reaction with Pwo.
Rapid cycling (5-10 sec each step) works the best - cleaner bands, no
non-specific amplifications. There are a lot of people working with yeast
around you, it should be easy to get some DNA or cells. If you can't get
it, send me your Fedex number - I'll send you some DNA from relatively WT
