Yeast is a fungus that reproduces asexually through a process called budding, where a new organism or cell develops from an outgrowth due to cell division.
In your experiment, you assessed yeast reproductive success at three temperatures: 0°C, 35°C, and 99°C.
1. Briefly summarize your results (look at your graph), and the conclusions you can draw from them, in a few sentences.
2. What has led to error (in the statistical sense-think standard error of the mean) in this experiment? In other words, what about the methodology, or the experimental design in general, would you improve in order to collect more accurate data?
