Hi everyone,

	Could anyone give me a simple protocol to look a GFP fusion protein in yeast.  Especially in terms of Staining cells with 
DAPI and fixing them.  I tried a couple of times by Staining with DAPI direclty in the medium (2hrs) before fixing the cells (1 h) and my 
nucleus seems all screwed up !!!(I see kind or filaments and/or dots, but no clear nucleus).  Is the order for DAPI additionand 
Formaldehyde fixation important??    I would be very happy if someone could help since I do not have lots of experience neither with 
microscopy nor yeast.  Thanks.
