Note: This overview expresses
my personal outlook on the yeast cell cycle field, with some
concentration on issues that are relevant to our own work, as
of 5-1-99. It is largely unreferenced, and much of the
information presented derives from the work of others. A list
of reviews for further reading on the subject is provided here.

cycle (Nasmyth, Trends Genet. 1996 12:405), click here.
