Hi All,

We would like to undertake some yeast 1- and 2-hybrid screens of ciliate libraries. We imagine that to do this, we need a yeast background that will suppress the ciliate glutamine codons that yeast recognize as stop codons relatively effectively (UAA and
UAG ->glutamine). There has been work done with E. coli suppressors for ciliate gene expression, but we would like to have the entire yeast genetic toolbox for the the hybrid screens.

Does anyone know of anything that might help us out in this endeavor?

Thanks so much,
Tom
