Abstract

Like most organisms, yeast has relatively few genes that are necessary for viability. The presence of a duplicate gene elsewhere in the genome underpins many cases of dispensability. A new study suggests that the backup mechanism is more complex than previously assumed and requires feedback loops that ensure transcriptional upregulation of the duplicate.
