Killer Yeast Identification
The capacity to be killed by a killer yeast is an easily scored and well-defined phenotype. An agar plate seeded with a sensitive strain and then inoculated with a killer strain produces a clear zone of inhibition within the seeded sensitive lawn. This technique, a simple screening assay to determine whether a yeast secretes killer toxin, is described in this method.
