activley growing versus arresting or dying cells

I  was wondering if there is a way to enrich for dying or arresting
cells (selectively killing actively dividing cells) in a culture of
Saccharomyces cerevisiae.  I am interested in setting up a screen for
mammalian cDNAs that kill yeast or lead to growth arrest.  I remember
from my undergraduate microbiology classes that there was a way to do
that for bacteria.  Is there such a system available for yeast?

Thanks in advance
