We present a detailed protocol that describes the evaluation of the growth and survival of yeast cells by quantitatively analyzing spotting assays. This simple method reproducibly detects and quantifies subtle differences in growth by measuring the density of cells within a single spot of defined size on an image of a spotting assay. Our protocol is tailored specifically for low-throughput applications, can be easily adapted for specific experimental conditions, and is accessible to yeast ex…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
