Method To understand the molecular basis of the yeast metabolic cycles (YMC), researchers performed microarray analysis of gene expression and assessed whether any genes were expressed periodically.
Comments Genes encoding proteins associated with energy, metabolism, and protein synthesis were overrepresented in the list of periodic genes. Moreover, characterization of the periodic genes with the yeast proteome localization data (Huh et al., 2003 PMID 14562095) indicated that gene products localized to the mitochondria, cell periphery, and bud neck tended to be expressed periodically.
