A new primer pair (delta12-delta21) for polymerase chain reaction-based yeast typing was designed using the yeast genome sequence. The specificity of this primer pair was checked by the comparison of the electrophoresis pattern with a virtual profile calculated from Blast data. The analysis of 53 commercial and laboratory Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strains showed a clear improvement of interdelta analysis using the newly designed primers.
