Quickly and easily lyse yeast cells to release DNA for study with Thermo Scientific™ Pierce Yeast DNA Extraction Kit, which utilizes a Thermo Scientific γ-PER Reagent.

The kit provides greater yields than traditional methods of DNA isolation from yeast. Typically, extraction and purification of DNA from yeast are time-consuming and labor-intensive. The yeast proteinaceous cell wall is notoriously difficult to lyse and requires harsh treatments that are time-consuming and can damage the extracted DNA. The Yeast DNA Extraction Kit protocol requires less than one hour to complete, is effective without enzymatic treatment or glass beads, and yields little to no RNA contamination regardless of RNase presence. In studies with Saccharomyces cerevisiae, high yields of genomic and plasmid DNA are consistently obtained. DNA purified using this kit is suitable for PCR amplification, bacterial transformations, restriction digestions and hybridization applications.


  • Eliminates need for glass beads or harsh enzyme treatments
  • Yields DNA that is compatible with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification
  • Rapidly isolates plasmid DNA from S. cerevisiae suitable for transformation of E. coli
  • Protocol is easily scalable for use with single colonies or 500mL cultures
