What is the value of knowing a yeast gene's function?

Suppose we know functions of a number of yeast genes whose functions
were not known before, what is the value of this information?

Could someone also point me to examples where functional studies of
yeast genes lead to better understanding of human/plant diseases,
especially in the area of metabolic pathways and DNA repair? Or a few
good review articles?

Thanks a lot for your help.
