Abstract

GENEALOGY OF PRINCIPAL STRAINS OF THE YEAST GENETIC STOCK CENTER Robert K. Mortimer 1 and John R. Johnston 2 1 Department of Biophysics and Medical Physics, University of California, Berkeley, California 94720 2 Department of Bioscience and Biotechnology, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, G1 1XW, Scotland We have constructed a genealogy of strain S288C, from which many of the mutant and segregant strains currently used in studies on the genetics and molecular biology of Saccharomyces cerevisiae have been derived. We have determined that its six progenitor strains were EM93, EM126, NRRL YB-210 and the three baking strains Yeast Foam, FLD and LK. We have estimated that approximately 88% of the gene pool of S288C is contributed by strain EM93. The principal ancestral genotypes were those of segregant strains EM93-1C and EM93-3B, initially distributed by C. C. Lindegren to several laboratories.

We give details of the current availability of several of the progenitor strains and propose that this genealogy should be of assistance in elucidating the origins of several types of genetic and molecular heterogeneities in Saccharomyces.
