In this protocol, yeast DNA is prepared by digestion of the cell wall and lysis of the resulting spheroplasts with SDS. This method reproducibly yields several micrograms of yeast DNA that can be efficiently cleaved by restriction enzymes and used as a template in polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Note that yeast colonies can also be used directly in PCR, without purifying yeast DNA.
