My Favorite Yeast Expression


EST1 and YLR243W



            EST1 and YLR243W are genes found in the unicellular fungi Saccharomyces cerevisiae.  I have previously described these genes using online databases and published the results in My Favorite Yeast Genes.  In this webpage, I continue this project by analyzing online microarray databases, particularly Expression Connection and Function Junction.  Click the links below to find the results of this online research.  The references contained within these links are found below.
