The identification of an actomyosin-based contractile ring in budding yeast has recently established this organism as a general model for studying cytokinesis. Work over the past three years has provided important new insights into the conserved mechanisms underlying the assembly and regulation of the cytokinetic structures. This review covers the recent progress in studying cytokinesis in budding yeast.
