Since the advent of microarray technology in the mid-1990s, and finishing of the complete genome sequence of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae in 1996, yeast has been at the forefront of genomic biology. In this article, we review the uses of microarrays to investigate yeast biology, and the wide range of applications that they have been used for. While, typically, people think of microarrays for generating large-scale expression measurements, we discuss several different experimental approaches that have used microarrays to probe almost every facet of a living yeast cell.
