Caption: A team of scientists, led by Leonid Kruglyak (left), a professor in Princeton University's Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, has developed a straightforward method for studying millions of yeast cells at the same time. The scientists believe the method ultimately could lead to a deeper understanding of how multiple genes interact. Ian Ehrenreich (right), a postdoctoral research fellow and first author on the Nature paper, said the team was determined to go beyond conventional methodologies to find a way that would allow them to identify multiple genes.
