An experiment has been performed that has shown the existence of cellular communication between optically coupled cultures which are chemically separate. The experiment used for the cellular culture the temperature-sensitive mutant yeast strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The novelty of this experiment lies in the simplicity of the experimental protocol and in the reasonably high statistic significance of the obtained results.
