Yeasts are commonly egg-shaped, but some are spherical, lemon-shaped, pear-shaped, cylindrical, triangular, or even elongated forming false mycelium called 'pseudomycelium'. In general, they are larger than most bacteria, but the smallest yeasts are not so large than most bacteria, but the smallest yeasts are not so large as the the largest bacteria. Yeasts do not possess flagella or other organs of locomotion. Budding is the most common method of asexual reproduction in yeasts. Some yeasts produce asexually by binary fission, a process akin to that by which most of the bacteria reproduce.
