    Evidence for loss and reacquisition of alcoholic fermentation in a fructophilic yeast lineage

    Carla Gonçalves et al.
    Comparative genomics coupled with genetic and biochemical studies show that central carbon metabolism in fungi can be remodeled by genes originating from bacteria.

    A microfluidic device for inferring metabolic landscapes in yeast monolayer colonies

    Zoran S Marinkovic et al.
    Metabolic gradients underlie gene expression patterns within spatially controlled expanding 2D microbial colonies.

    Evolving a 24-hr oscillator in budding yeast

    Gregg A Wildenberg, Andrew W Murray
    New complex traits can evolve through the elimination of genes in multiple unrelated pathways, rather than through the creation of new gene functions.

    Ubiquitination-dependent control of sexual differentiation in fission yeast

    Fabrizio Simonetti et al.
    The RNA-binding protein Mmi1 targets its own inhibitor Mei2 for ubiquitination by the E3 ubiquitin ligase Not4/Mot2 in order to preserve its role in meiotic mRNA decay during vegetative growth.

    Cell cycle entry triggers a switch between two modes of Cdc42 activation during yeast polarization

    Kristen Witte et al.
    Optogenetic control of Cdc42 activation during polarization of budding yeast demonstrates a cell cycle regulated switch between two distinct modes of positive feedback.

    The step-wise pathway of septin hetero-octamer assembly in budding yeast

    Andrew Weems, Michael McMurray
    In budding yeast cells, slow monomeric septin GTPase activity and the cytosolic GTP:GDP ratio dictate the relative incorporation of alternative subunits during septin hetero-oligomer assembly, which proceeds by discrete, ordered steps dependent on allostery between interaction interfaces.

    Structured illumination with particle averaging reveals novel roles for yeast centrosome components during duplication

    Shannon Burns et al.
    Visualization of yeast spindle pole proteins using a new microscopy method shows that assembly into the nuclear membrane occurs at the same time as duplication.

    Further support for aneuploidy tolerance in wild yeast and effects of dosage compensation on gene copy-number evolution

    Audrey P Gasch et al.
    Many natural isolates of budding yeast carry extra chromosome copies and show lower-than-expected expression at a subset of amplified genes, which show unique evolutionary signatures.

    A sphingolipid-dependent diffusion barrier confines ER stress to the yeast mother cell

    Lori Clay et al.
    Sphingolipids govern the compartmentalization of yeast cells through the assembly of lateral diffusion barriers in ER membranes.

    Protein biogenesis machinery is a driver of replicative aging in yeast

    Georges E Janssens et al.
    A comprehensive mapping of the proteome and transcriptome during the complete replicative lifespan of budding yeast predicted an increased abundance of the protein biogenesis machinery is most causal for aging.
