Open Access: High plasticity of ribosomal DNA organization in budding yeast

Cell Reports | VOLUME 43, ISSUE 2, FEBRUARY 27, 2024

Jiang et al. have developed an efficient method for constructing ectopic rDNA arrays. Using this method, they have found that as few as eight copies of rDNA repeats are adequate to sustain yeast viability, and multiple DNA arrays on separate chromosomes form a single nucleolus in yeast. Very cool!
