By now everyone probably knows that the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physiology
or Medicine is shared between Lee Hartwell, Paul Nurse, and Tim Hunt.

Lee of course is a major figure in S. cerevisiae research, and Paul is
the first name that comes to mind when you think of S. pombe.

Have there been other yeast folk who have received a Nobel Prize for
their work in yeast?  After a quick look  at the list
(http://www.nobel.se/medicine/laureates/index.html) ,  I see Gunter
Blobel, although he does not work exclusively in yeast.  Did I miss
anyone?

In any event, here is a cause for all yeasties to celebrate.
