    Description

    The primary structure of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome was fully determined in 1996. However, the pertience of this knowledge for understanding genome organization of other organisms is still unclear. In the present project techniques of molecular biology are used to characterize the nuclear and mitochondrial genomes of species belonging to the Saccharomyces genus and to investigate their evolutionary relationships, genetic stability and genetic rules operating during transmission to the progeny.
