Homogenic incompatibility Incompatibility in yeasts



Sexuality in yeast was discovered in 1900 by Hoffmeister. Satava (1918, 1934); Winge (1935, 1944); and Winge and Laustsen (1937, 1938, 1939) found a regular alternation of haploid and diploid phases in the life-cycle of certain yeasts. Winge (1935) maintained that the yeasts were homothallic, whereas Lindegren and Lindegren (1943 a, b, and c) claimed that they were heterothallic.
