About SGD

The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD) provides comprehensive integrated biological information for the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae along with search and analysis tools to explore these data, enabling the discovery of functional relationships between sequence and gene products in fungi and higher organisms.

New & Noteworthy

  • Pulsating Yeast


    Sometimes when you get a minor injury, doctors will recommend alternating heat and cold as a therapy. The heat opens things up and the cold shuts them back down again. Now obviously it would be pretty useless to apply both at the same time. Adding a bit of lukewarm water to an injury is not going to be very helpful at all. The same thing holds true for many genes. If activators and repressors all turned on... Read...
  • Yeast, the Spam Filter


    Imagine what our email inboxes would look like if we didn't have spam filters! To find the meaningful emails, we’d have to wade through hundreds of messages about winning lottery tickets, discount medications, and other things that don’t interest us. When it comes to sorting out meaningful mutations from meaningless variation in human genes, it turns out that our friend S. cerevisiae makes a pretty good spam filter. And as more and more human genomic sequence... Read...
  • New SGD Help Video: Variant Viewer


    Using SGD’s Variant Viewer, you can compare the nucleotide and protein sequences of your favorite genes in twelve widely-used S. cerevisiae genomes. This tool shows alignments, similarity scores, and sequence variants for open reading frames (ORFs) from the different strains relative to the S288C reference genome. Sequence data are derived from Song et al., 2015. Take a look at our new video tutorial to get started with the Variant Viewer, and let us know if you... Read...
  • SGD Help Video: Mutant Phenotypes


    SGD's Phenotype pages present detailed information about single mutant phenotypes for a particular gene, along with references for each observation. Phenotype pages are accessible from the 'Phenotype' tab of the Locus Summary and is also linked from the Mutant Phenotypes section of the Locus Summary, where the phenotype data are presented in summary form. Data are presented in tabular form on the Phenotype page. This brief video will give you an overview of the contents and... Read...
