By flanking promoters in budding yeast with inverted loxP sites and adding Cre recombinase to randomize their orientation, the authors demonstrate the ability to produce a combinatorial explosion (2N, 3N or 4N) of expression states with a small (N) number of genetic modifications. They show how this approach can reveal novel epistatic interactions in base excision repair and suggest how it may be deployed for biotechnological applications.
