The MX4blaster is a novel MX4 compatible cassette by which kanMX4 sequences in the S. cerevisiae genome can be repeatedly and cleanly removed using a simple and inexpensive procedure.

The continuing quest for methods to introduce multigene constructs for recombinant expression of complex pathways has been advanced by Kuijpers et al., who reported the successful integration of a 22 kb DNA fragment into a single targeted chromosomal locus in Saccharomyces cerevisiae through utilization of I-SceI meganuclease.
Evolutionary engineering of nickel-resistant yeast
In this study, global transcriptomic analysis of a nickel hyper-resistant Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain successfully obtained by evolutionary engineering revealed that 640 upregulated genes were related to iron homeostasis, stress response and oxidative damage which implies that nickel resistance may share common mechanisms with iron and cobalt resistance, general stress response and oxidative damage.
