Yeast Barcoder Collection


The Yeast Barcoder Collection is a set of approximately 1,200 donor strains with unique DNA sequence tags (barcodes) that can be systematically transferred to any S. cerevisiae collection.
The Yeast Barcoder Collection is a set of approximately 1,200 donor strains with unique DNA sequence tags (barcoders) that can be systematically transferred to any S. cerevisiae collection. These barcodes have been transformed into S. cerevisiae strain BY4741, replacing the phenotypically-neutral HO locus with two unique bar codes flanking the KanMX4 cassette.

Highlights

  • Provides a simplified method of barcoding yeast collections
  • Includes approximately 1,200 donor strains with unique DNA sequence tags (barcoders)
  • Barcoders confer G418 resistance, allowing for selection of barcoded experimental strains
  • Yeast barcodes are provided as a live yeast cultures in 96-well format and shipped on dry ice

Note

We provide certain clone resources developed by leading academic laboratories. Many of these resources address the needs of specialized research communities not served by other commercial entities. In order to provide these as a public resource, we depend on the contributing academic laboratories for quality control. Therefore, these are distributed in the format provided by the contributing institution "as is" with no additional product validation or guarantee. We are not responsible for any errors or performance issues. Additional information can be found in the product manual as well as in associated published articles (if available). Alternatively, the source academic institution can be contacted directly for troubleshooting.

Shipping Information

Yeast barcoders are provided as a live yeast cultures in 96-well format and shipped on dry ice. Strains are shipped in YPD broth with G418 (300 µg/mL) and is supplemented with 15% glycerol. Store the collection indefinitely at -80°C.

Developed by Dr. Corey Nislow (University of Toronto), the Barcoder collection provides an efficient way to introduce unique barcodes in to arrayed yeast libraries. Highly parallel bioassays are a cost effective way to perform genome-scale screens. However, inserting these into a current collection can be expensive and time consuming. This collection allows barcodes to be introduced systematically simply by crossing mate-types. The method has been validated in combination with the DaMP collection (Yan et al., 2008).
