Yeast Madness

a Petri dish with colonies of pink and blue yeast

The Yeast Madness kit builds upon our research of azole resistance. Students are presented with information on mutations present in eight azole-resistant strains and predict whch will be most fit in the presence of an azole drug in a bracket-style competition. Students then carry out competitive growth experiments and determine winners by counting relative numbers of colonies produced by different colored strains.
