    Excerpt: ... s the most likely and how you could test your predictions. 1)What types of communication could the cells use? (If you wanted to get the attention of a classmate across the room how could you do it? How could a cell do the same thing?) Brainstorm-do not restrict your answers to ones that 'sound scientific'. Answer 1: 2)Under the microscope yeast cells look like little spheres. They are not motile. What physical changes could help the cells interact? Answer 2: Cell Bio Lab Manual 7 3)Since haploid yeast strains (a and ) look very much alike how can we tell if mating has occurred to form a diploid (called a/ ) ? (what is a haploid and a diploid?) Answer 3: This lab uses yeast strain that contain different auxotrophies, that is they contain a mutation that blocks the synthesis of some required substance. They can only grow if supplied that substance in the growth media. The a strain we are using is requires added leucine (its trp-). The strain needs added lysine (its lys-). 'Scientifically speaking' it is ...
