Abstract:
Genetic variation is the raw material upon which natural selection acts to spread advantageous phenotypic traits throughout populations. Studies in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae have begun to uncover the extent of genetic variation within yeast populations, but the fitness effects of this variation are still poorly understood. Furthermore, the interplay between genotype, envkonment and fitness only recently begun to be explored at the molecular level. The aun of this thesis is to explore this complex relationship.
