The cover illustration depicts pseudohyphal filaments of the ascomycete Saccharomyces cerevisiae that enable this organism to forage for nutrients. Pseudohyphal filaments were induced here in a wildtype haploid MATa S 1278b strain by an unknown readily diffusible factor provided by growth in confrontation with an isogenic petite yeast strain in a sealed petri dish for two weeks and photographed at 100X magnification (provided by Xuewen Pan and Joseph Heitman).
