This chapter focuses on how yeast became the prime focus of eukaryotic molecular biology after 1975. It summarizes some of the major studies in yeast biology. It shows how progress in disentangling the complexity of certain features of the eukaryotic cell enabled yeast to supplant the filamentous fungi definitively as a model eukaryote.
