When screening a large number of individual Schizosaccharomyces pombe strains by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), a rapid “colony PCR” approach may be used. Numerous colony PCR protocols are available, and fundamental to them all is that the colony must be fresh (grown overnight) and that as few cells as possible are used. In this protocol, we present three reliable methods for preparing S. pombe cells for colony PCR.
