Summary
Yeast sporulation is useful for identification of some species of wild yeast, because lager yeast generally sporulates poorly, if at all. Sporulation can also be used to help characterize yeast and to produce spores for genetic studies. This method determines percentage of sporulated cells and typical number of spores per ascus in a sample.
