Ira Herskowitz

"This is the website for the research laboratory of Ira Herskowitz, PhD (deceased, 2003) at the University of California, San Francisco. The lab studied basic scientific questions about the life cycle of a prototypic eukaryotic cell, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Although the lab's specialty was genetics, they also used biochemistry and molecular biology to approach a number of problems. This site provides useful techniques and information for doing yeast genetics." –Hershkowitz website
