#22) You have identified five genes in S. cerevisiae that are induced when the yeast are grown in a high-salt (NaCl) medium. To study the potential roles of these genes in acclimation to the growth in high-salt conditions, you wish to examine the phenotypes of loss-and-gain-of-function alleles of each. How will you do this?
