Project context and summary :

In wild life, yeast cells are able to survive in severe conditions, without nutriment for a long period of time because the cell is able to enter in stationary phase. During this phase, the cell can transform varied sources of energy and pause its growth to preserve the cells from death. It is known that most of genes are downregulated in stationary phase and the cell activity is globally reduced to its strict minimum, while a subset of “specialized” genes is induced to promote survival in extreme conditions. We are analysing the transcriptome of exponentially grown or stationary phase yeasts, investigating different level of regulation.
